Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The Olmsted County Board has set the maximum property tax levy for its 2017 budget.  

The $92-million figure represents a $2.3-million or 2.5%  increase over the 2016 levy.

The board was told the number is comparable to the amount of new property added this year so it appears many 2017 tax bills won’t see any increase.

The 2016 levy was nearly 5-percent higher than the previous year.

The  board will set the official levy when it adopts its 2017 budget in December.
