Albert Lea approves preliminary service tax increase

Posted:

ALBERT LEA, Minn. (KTTC) -- The city of Albert Lea is a step closer to increasing property taxes.

The money from the increased taxes would go towards major city projects like the Streetscape project that began in May.

Monday night, the city council approved a preliminary service tax increase of 6.4 percent.

Residents won't see their taxes increase until January after the city has come to a final levy decision - that decision needs to be determined by December 15th.

City officials say they are still working to get more details on how much taxes could go up for residents.
