Lincoln levy increase proposed

An increase on the tax levy is another thing residents in the town of Lincoln can blame on the snow. The town of Lincoln board will leave it up to the voters next week on potentially exceeding the allowable town tax levy by 37 percent, which is a total dollar increase of $21,517. The town had been trying to hold the line in recent years, even as services provided by the county and others climbed. Town chairperson Cory Cochart says road and winter maintenance is the main culprit. 

Cochart says the purchase of election machines and other expenses contributed to the request. The special meeting will be held on October 23rd at 7 p.m. at the Lincoln Town Hall. A vote will take place after a background information presentation, a public comment and question period, and a reading of the ordinance.
