Grand Forks Property Taxes

Property taxes in Grand Forks would climb two-point-85 percent on the city portion of the bill next year under a proposed budget presented to members of the city council last night. It was the first time the council saw the working document in its entirety – after several working sessions reviewing various department budgets. The proposed spending plan calls for a zero mill increase in 2018. Finance Director Maureen Storstad says one of the biggest challenges is the loss of state aide.
Utility rates would climb just shy of three-percent next year – led by a six-percent water rate increase. That figure could be adjusted downward depending upon the outcome of the local sales tax ballot question.
The council is expected to give the budget preliminary approval on August 28th and final approval on September 18th.
