MASON CITY – The Mason City council met for a work session Thursday at City Hall.

According to meeting minutes, a projected tax increase for Mason City property owners is hovering around 10% at this time. The budget process is still fluid and no budget would be certified by the council until March or so. In addition, NIT reported on January 27th that Mason City water and sanitation customers could face large rate increases for both services.

At the work session, Finance Director Kevin Jacobson said the tax levy would be $13.94 or a 10.73% increase.  The council discussed ways to try to bring the tax increase below 10%, and how funding in Main Street was calculated, the amount allocated to RAGBRAI, when payment for the second statue would be made, and funding for Little League.

It was the consensus of the Council to fund the Outside Organizations as follows: Main Street $25,000; Senior Center $15,000; North Iowa Corridor $126,000 (an increase from $105,000); Youth Baseball $10,000; PGI $10,000; RAGBRAI $40,000; North Iowa Events Center $10,000.
