This budget season has been the most difficult item that I have experienced as your County Commissioner. Many of the old timers around here say it’s been the most contentious for them, too. However, there is some good news!

We passed a tax rate that is lower than your current rate, from $0.476529 to $0.466529. I had two main goals going into this budget season: 1. Our elected officials receive a good salary already, and I felt that we didn’t need a salary increase, and 2. With a rapidly growing population putting stress on county services, I believed that our county departments needed more people to serve you.
