Nevis Council approves preliminary levy at 15 percent increase over 2009
After a few sessions of budgetary fine-tuning, the Nevis Council approved a preliminary levy of $216,314 Monday night, a 15 percent increase over 2009.
The amount is based on a modest liquor transfer of $25,000, as opposed to $65,000 in the past. (Liquor store earnings year to date are $13,019.)
"I don't think we'll end up there," mayor Dave McCurnin said of the proposed levy increase.
