Is it property tax relief? Or a tax increase? Governor Burgum signed legislation last week designed to have the state take over paying for social service programs. Supporters call the 161-million dollar program real property tax relief. But moving forward it replaces the 12-percent property tax program now in place. Grand Forks Finance Director Maureen Storstad ran some numbers for the city council that shows the owner of a 200-thousand dollar home in the city will pay 187-dollars more annually. Storstad says the net result is a seven-percent increase over current levels.
