Twin Valley, MN — The Twin Valley City Council held their final regular monthly meeting of the year on Monday night at the Twin Valley Community Center. As part of that they held the annual truth-in taxation hearing, which had no attendance or comments from the public. Later in the evening, they approved the 2021 tax levy with an increase of just under 10%, which will cover added expenses and wage increases, according to Twin Valley Mayor Ben Fall.

The council also approved a set wage scale and cost of living increases through the year 2023. Mayor Fall says this should make setting wages for future employees and raises for current employees much simpler moving forward.

And this meeting was the final meeting for councilmembers Joel Pearson and Nate Dobmeyer, although Dobmeyer was not in attendance. Mayor Fall thanked them for their years of service and added that he is looking forward to a pair of new council members starting their terms in 2021.

Pearson served on the council for 8 years and Dobmeyer served for 4 years. Paul Bekkerus and Mark Askelson will begin serving in 2021.
