STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution sets the proposed tax levy for the year 2008 for the Duluth housing and redevelopment authority - HRA. The HRA requested $779,800, which is base on the full levy allowable by law of .0144 percent of market value. The levy will increase at the request of the authority in the amount of $164,100 over 2007. However, the resolution was amended to set the levy at $614,900 which equals last year's levy. This is the fourth consecutive year the HRA's levy was set at this rate.
