    Subd. 5. Interest chargeable on amounts due. Any amount due under this section or

collection. The county auditor shall collect the amount out of the revenue of the governmental
subdivision, or shall add the amount to the levy of the governmental subdivision and make

district, may levy taxes in excess of the limitation in such amount as is necessary to meet its
obligations under this section. The expenditures authorized to be made under this chapter by any
municipality are not included in computing the cost of government as defined in any home rule
charter of any municipality which employs members covered by the retirement fund.
