Jake Keohen, Staff Writer

The Le Sueur County Board of Commissioners approved the 2011 property tax levy and budget following a public hearing held Tuesday evening, Dec. 14.

The levy shows an increase of 1.08 percent, while the overall county budget is down by 6.44 percent.

County Administrator/Engineer Darrell Pettis said the somewhat contradictory increase/decrease in the county financial picture can be attributed to a matter of accounting, primarily involving the highway department budget.
