Truth in Taxation coming up for local governments

Goodhue County residents will have the opportunity to discuss and listen to tax proposals at upcoming city and school board meetings.

Truth-in-Taxation meetings are annual property hearings that are required for most cities and all school districts. Bellechester and Dennison due to their size are not required to hold hearings and have no meeting date scheduled at this time, according to the county.

The meetings kicked off with the Kenyon-Wanamingo School District on Nov. 26, the only scheduled for that month between cities and school districts. The final meeting will be on Dec. 19 for the Goodhue County School District.
