Where is the mention of the amount of the sales tax the city no longer has to pay?

The governor promised property taxes were going to go down with the new LGA program. I know I heard them grandstand that as a benefit when they passed it.

Evidently the city administrator, the council and the mayor were not on board with the governor.

Someone had to pay for those huge raises for the council.

If people forget or don't care about what a politician campaigns for or against, then what are you voting for?? I'm not talking just during their actual campaign, but in office too, they never stop campaigning. The governor promised property tax relief when campaigning for all the extra spending on education, LGA, etc. I even had one state house rep tell me that she thought that the local cities are "on the same page" as the state in regards to the LGA and either holding or lowering out-state property tax. I laughed then, and I guess I can laugh again now. Don't worry, before Dayton's out he will have pushed through service-based taxation and pay for all of his agenda. Can't wait for spring 2014 MN session....

With Thompson being his likely opponent, I'd watch what you wish for.

My taxes went down. Not much, but they did go down.

One has to be sure to look at the valuation they have assigned as taxable value. This has an effect when they apply the millage rate to determine your taxes due.
