1/29/2013 1:21:00 PM Dodge Center in line for $285,000
By Larry Dobson
Dodge Center City Council met in regular session Monday, Jan. 28 and item one on Administrator Lee Mattson's report was discussion of the pending award of a share of Rochester's new sales tax revenue. Mattson said Dodge Center is currently anticipating $285, 000 but that the amount is not assured yet because 14 cities have expressed an interest in participating. Initially, only communities within 25 miles of Rochester and with populations of 1,000 or more were to be eligible for participation but that requirement may have been set aside. If more communities are allowed to participate, then the shares will be smaller. Payments are scheduled to begin in July, 2013 when half of the award will be made. The balance will be paid in 2014.
