Email News Alerts

Alexandria’s tax bite won’t be quite as big as expected next year.

In fact, most Alexandria residents should see the city's portion of their tax bill decrease by about 2 percent.


The council approved a 2014 tax levy increase of 1.26 percent after holding its truth in taxation hearing Monday night.

That’s down slightly from the 1.5 percent levy it approved in September. It’s also the city’s lowest levy increase since 2006, according to City Administrator Marty Schultz.
