Council OKs preliminary levy, conditional use permit

The Worthington City Council approved its preliminary levy for 2024 during its Monday meeting.

The proposed levy represents a 18.0% increase over 2023. Worthington City Administrator Steve Robinson said that figure gives the city some extra room as it waits for news on costs for health insurance premiums as well as potential added costs for utilizing the county attorney. Nobles County is hoping the city will next year begin contributing 30 percent of that salary as opposed to the current 25 percent, as the new number better represents the percentage of city cases.

The proposed levy is an amount not to exceed and may be lowered -- but not raised -- for the final levy certification in December.

Also Monday, council members approved a conditional use permit for JB Brooke Properties that would allow for an approximately 45 foot x 60 foot addition to the existing Frito-Lay warehouse/distribution center located at 1260 27th St. The building will add 2,700 more square feet to the east, and yhe same building manufacturer will be used. The plan is that one should not be able tell an expansion was completed once the new work is done.

The council also approved five resolutions calling for hearings on proposed assessments. The resolutions call for the hearings to take place at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 9 during the regular council meeting.
