Cass County Board: Commissioners set preliminary levy of $21.5 million; Levy would be an increase over 2016
WALKER—Cass County Board Tuesday adopted a 2017 preliminary levy of $21,556,545, or 4.81 percent more than the 2016 levy.
The county's tax rate would rise from 31.423 this year to 32.716 in 2017. This would mean about $22 more county taxes for a $200,000 homeowner, Josh Stevenson, incoming administrator said.
In adopting the preliminary amount and tax rate, the board also instructed the citizen budget committee and department heads to work together to lower the final amount and tax rate before the board adopts a final budget in December.
