The Lincoln County Truth in Taxation (TnT) meeting was held on Tuesday, Dec. 3, 6 p.m. at the Lincoln County Courthouse. According to the Minnesota House Research Department, “TnT was enacted with a goal of improving ac­countability by focus­ing taxpayers on the relationship between budget decisions and property taxes, and pro­viding taxpayers with a greater opportunity to become involved in the local government bud­geting process.” County landowners partici­pated in the meeting to discuss the proposed 3% levy increase and to learn what the final levy would be.
