After three failed attempts to lower it, Goodhue County Board narrowly approved a levy increase of 1.72 percent for 2014 — the maximum increase allowed by the state.


The increase passed 3-2 at a board meeting Tuesday. Commissioners Ted Seifert and Ron Allen voted in opposition.

The levy is set at $27,399,013, an increase of $462,355 over the 2013 amount, according to a staff report. The 2014 county budget is $64,323,586.
