Commissioners begin budget business

Published: Thursday, June 12, 2014 at 11:11 AM.

The Board of County Commissioners last Thursday began work on the 2014-2015 budget.

County administrator Don Butler brought a series of recommendations from a staff committee reviewing the budget, seeking guidance from commissioners.

Butler said that indications from the Property Appraiser’s office were for property values to move up incrementally this year after seven years of decline.

The increase, Butler said, was estimated to be 2-3 percent, or roughly $190,000-$265,000 in terms of new dollars for commissioners.

The taxable property roll will be submitted to the state by Property Appraiser Mitch Burke early next month.

Butler said the modest increase in revenue would not completely mitigate estimated increases in spending.
