(from news release)
Once again, the Sartell city council approved a flat property-tax rate for 2024 at the Sept. 11 city council meeting.
The council and city made a flat tax rate a top priority for property owners, especially given another year of increased valuations. Since 2016, the city has held as close to 0 percent as possible, with an average of .32 percent increase in property-tax increase per year.
A press release states “even as Sartell grows, it continues to be the top priority of our team to maintain the safe and family-friendly community we all love, while sustaining the lowest city tax rate possible for our residents. With the strong growth in tax capacity in 2024, the city is continuing to build and restrict cash funds for road projects and vital equipment.”
Property taxes are comprised of three parts: city tax, school tax, county tax. Sartell is keeping the city tax portion at a flat rate and does not have jurisdiction over the school or county tax. City property taxes are used for services such as streets, police and fire services, parks, snowplowing, community-center amenities, disability access and more. As noted above, Sartell continues to sustain a consistent and stable tax rate, with limited fluctuation. Its tax rate is one of the lowest in the St. Cloud area.
