You'll have a chance when city officials host a budget open house from 4:30 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at Eagan City Hall. Displays depicting departmental services will be available and city staff will be on hand to answer questions.

Earlier this fall, the Eagan City Council . The proposed increase would bring the total amount levied in 2013 to $28,322,017, a nearly $900,000 hike over the $27,425,081 levied in 2012. The proposed tax hike will help the city keep up with inflationary costs and pay for a roughly 1.5 percent pay increase for all city staff, according to city officials.

The City Council takes up consideration of the 2013 proposed budget at its hearing during a council meeting on Dec. 4. The council will likely make its final determination on the tax levy and budget at a Dec. 18 meeting.
