County Commission adjusts 2013 budget with 5-mill increase


The Stutsman County Commission adjusted some elements of its tentative 2013 budget at its Thursday meeting, including the percentage of its cost-of-living increase.

If that tentative budget is passed, it would mean a levy increase of $959,840 -- including an increase of more than 5 mills.

"The only increase in the mill levy is because of health insurance and retirement," said Casey Bradley, the county's auditor/chief operating officer.
