Nevis Council approves increased 2011 tax levy
The Nevis Council approved a 3.14 percent increase in the preliminary property tax levy Monday night, totaling $212,278.
A proposed $310,618 general fund budget also received the nod.
The council, noting liquor store earnings are down from years past, agreed to a $30,000 transfer to the general fund, as opposed to $60,000 to $65,000 in recent years.
The liquor store, to date, has netted approximately $13,000, with an income of $4,512 in August.
