Rosemount residents will see an increase again this year in the taxes they pay to the city, but they’re still paying about $100 less than they did in 2008. City council members approved a preliminary tax levy of $11,039,302 Tuesday. That’s a 1.95 percent increase from last year’s levy, and combined with increases in property values it adds up an estimated $34 increase in taxes for a $238,250 home, the median value in the city. Finance director Jeff May said there’s no single increase that accounts for the higher tax bill.
The Rosemount City council approved zoning and comprehensive guide plan changes Tuesday that clear the way for the construction of a mosque in the former City Limits bowling alley on Highway 3. Assuming the Met Council gives its OK to the comprehensive guide plan, the property will be sold to the Minnesota Education Trust. The mosque and community center would be operated by the Muslim American Society of Minnesota.
