Email News Alerts

Call it a tax hearing that wasn't.

Alexandria's "Truth in Taxation" hearing to discuss the 2011 budget and proposed levy was supposed to take place this past Monday night. That's when the city scheduled the hearing after approving the preliminary budget in September.


But in the official tax hearing notices that Douglas County mailed out last week, Alexandria's hearing was listed as Monday, December 13.
