It’s a short agenda for the last West St. Paul City Council meeting of the year.
- Project presentations: The Problem Solving for Environmental Change class at the University of Minnesota has been working with the city to tackle real issues. During the Open Council Work Session (OCWS), nine groups will present their projects and recommendations. The projects range include the bike/ped plan, park use, trees, stormwater management, recycling, and more.
- Public hearing: Council will review and officially adopt the 2022 budget, including the 2022 property tax levy. They’re looking at a 5.15% increase, as reported earlier. That’s the lowest increase since 2016. If you want to know more about how those property taxes work, we dove in and wrote a detailed explainer. If you want to know where your tax money is going, the budget presentation has it broken down by city service. Here’s a handy graph:
The public can watch the meeting live on Town Square TV or cable TV starting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday (5 p.m. for the OCWS meeting).
