Email News Alerts

Property taxes will be going down in Perham next year, thanks to increased funding and a sales tax break from the state.

City councilors on Monday approved Perham’s 2014 levy and budget, with a final certified levy decrease of 1.06 percent over last year, the same amount the city preliminarily proposed in September.


It will be the first time in at least a decade that the city has not raised its annual levy.
