Minnesota – Council Scales Back Plans For Local Option Sales Tax

The Crosslake City Council will still seek to implement a 0.5% local option sales and use tax in the city, but dramatically scaled back plans approved last month.

The council agreed Monday, Jan. 6, to seek the tax over 15 years to help fund $6 million in estimated costs for three proposed wastewater infrastructure projects. The sales tax increase would generate an estimated $4.8 million over the 15 years, with an estimated $1.2 million in assessments making up the rest of the needed funding.

No increase in the general tax levy would be needed to help fund the projects.
