Truth in Taxation hearings

The Bemidji City Council will hold their truth in taxation hearing today, and the Beltrami County Board of Commissioners will hold theirs tomorrow.

The truth in taxation hearings are more about how levy dollars are spent, not how individual property taxes are affected.

The city’s truth in taxation hearing will be held tonight at 6 p.m. at City Hall, and the county’s truth in taxation hearing will be held tomorrow, 6 p.m., at the county administration building.

    I heard that the city would like to use some of its contingency funds (tax dollars), to hire a lobbyist to try to raise sales taxes. I do not think it should be allowed to use OUR money to raise our own taxes. If the justification cannot be presented through the normal channels and paperwork, forget it.
