Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges will outline her budget proposal for 2017 in a speech Wednesday morning at City Hall.
In the 11 a.m. speech, the mayor will outline her plans for city departments, along with her proposal for the city's tax levy, which is the amount collected in property taxes. This year's budget increased the levy by 3.4 percent, while the increase a year earlier was 2.1 percent. The total budget in both years came in around $1.2 billion.
The speech will be broadcast on the city's cable channel, which can be found here.
