Swanville increases preliminary 2017 tax levy 13.6 percent

The Swanville City Council increased its proposed tax levy Tuesday, for property taxes in 2017.

Last year’s proposed levy was set at $79,500, but was later lowered to $73,500.

The proposed tax levy was increased by $10,000, or 13.6 percent. Mayor Sandy Lange said that the approved amount of $83,500 was only preliminary and could very well be lowered.
