Murray County Board of Commissioners

December 26, 2012

County levy set with increase
By Dorothy Bloemendaal Murray County News staff writer

The Murray County Board of Commissioners open all their meetings with the Pledge of Allegiance. Included in Tuesday’s agenda was a moment of silence in remembrance of the recent massacre in Connecticut.

The 2013 levy for county expenses was set with an increase of 5.25 percent a net total of $5,786,582.

Justin Hoffmann, parks director, reported the donation of the Schmitt Foundation to be used for an Native American Center at the End-O-Line Park should be returned as the project has not proceeded on recommendation of the MAP assessment. The center would be in conflict with the museum’s focus and mission and has resulted in this project being put on hold indefinitely. A specific project may be applied for later. The Foundation has been very instrumental in providing various funds for other projects of county interest.
