From the City of Wayzata:

The Truth in Taxation Hearing will be held on Monday, December 1st at 7:00 pm in the Wayzata City Hall Community Room. You can find out how the 2009 budget affects your property tax bill. The City of Wayzata has a responsible long-term perspective with financial planning and management. Decisions are made with the future in mind to ensure our ongoing ability to provide residents and businesses with the quality services they have come to expect, and at a reasonable cost. City taxes represent only about one fourth of your total property taxes. Hennepin County and the school district each account for another one third of total taxes, and other smaller jurisdictions make up the remainder. Property taxes support the basic City services which go to maintaining streets, public facilities and providing police and fire protection. is your Truth in Taxation Meeting leader.
