Hennepin County will hold a public meeting on the proposed 2013 budget and property tax levy – commonly called the Truth in Taxation meeting – at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 27, in the County Board Room on the 24th Floor of the Hennepin County Government Center, 300 S. Sixth St., in downtown Minneapolis.
