Albany police and fire levy 2013 (3)
Voters in the City of Albany will decide on a $20.3 million bond November 5. The bond would cost property tax payers about 43 cents per $1,000 of taxable assessed value. After an existing bond ends this year, City Councilor Floyd Collins said passing a new bond would not increase taxes - and doing so now could save money. "Should we delay, not only will interest rates will go up, but construction costs will probably go up," Collins said.
