Nevis decreases '10 levy; looks to city liquor profits

Email News Alerts

As a means of "reducing taxpayer burden," the Nevis Council decreased the final 2010 levy by $10,000, from $215,267 to $205,267, eyeing the municipal liquor store as an "optimistic" means to augment the budget.


This is a 9 percent increase from the 2009 levy of $188,376.

The council had originally budgeted a $25,000 transfer from the liquor store, and a 15 percent increase in the levy, but bumped up the transfer amount to $35,000 in the final budget.
