The Perham city tax levy is expected to increase a little over 8 percent next year, based on the preliminary levy that was approved at the Sept. 13 City Council meeting.


The preliminary levy was set at $1,210,450. According to City Manager Kelcey Klemm, "much of that (8 percent) increase is due to our debt service levy," which is used to pay for city infrastructure improvements.
