The St. Michael City Council meets Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at . The St. Michael council had unanimously agreed and accepted a 2.99 percent levy at the August 28 meeting. City Administrator Steve Bot told the council that reasons for the levy increase were due to equipment needs and an increased bond payment due to lack of development in recent years.
The levy amount can decrease but can not increase.
Included on Tuesday night's agenda are several community development items including the possibility of solar energy powered city buildings and a joint agreement between St. Michael and Albertville to share St. Michael's building inspector.
The meeting begins at 7 p.m, is open to the public and has an open forum at the beginning.
