At Tuesday’s meeting, the Windom City Council will get its first look at a potential 2022 budget from the city staff’s perspective.
The council is expected to approve a preliminary tax levy. The proposal from city staff is a 5.75% preliminary levy, which equals $125,826 more for city spending in 2022.

The council will discuss the levy at meetings leading up to the December deadline. Traditionally, the levy drops during that process.
