Two incumbents are running for reelection in this year’s uncontested St. Anthony Village city council race.
Jan Jensen is close to completing his first term on the city council and says he is eager to serve in a second.
Bulletin-area cities recently approved their preliminary property tax levies for 2014.
The preliminary levies are “not-to-exceed” levies, meaning once the preliminary levies are approved by city councils they cannot be increased, however, they can be lowered.
It looks like the big news on Ramsey County’s proposed 2014-15 budget is that property owners won’t see any increases in the county’s levy.
“We’re going to have no levy increase,” declared budget chair and District 2 commissioner Victoria Reinhardt.
Reinhardt says that’s because other entities have begun funding county programs they’d dropped for several years.
Investigators are looking for these two men, who the Ramsey County Sheriff's Department has said are persons of interest in the shooting death of Hagos Tsegay Melake.

This woman was caught on camera using one of Hagos Tsegay Melake's bank cards at a US Bank ATM on West Broadway in Minneapolis three hours after he was last seen. She is also a person of interest in the homicide investigation.
At a Wednesday press conference, several of Hagos Tsegay Melake's family members pleaded for anyone with information in his shooting death to come forward.
Authorities are looking for three persons of interest in the fatal shooting of 26-year-old Hagos Tsegay Melake.

Community members at a Sept. 17 open house shared ideas on the types of development they would like to see on the site of the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP).
In April, Ramsey County purchased the 427-acre parcel of land from the federal government for $28.5 million, and the land will be sold for private development. The Sept. 17 meeting was also an opportunity for curious citizens to ask questions about the project and get up to speed on its status.
