After a contentious 4 hour meeting on September 11, 2019, The Board of County Commissioners voted 3-2 to both approve the proposed 1 mill increase and the tentative budget. Commissioners Steve Champion and Wayne Dukes opposed both measures maintaining that more expenses could be cut, rather than increasing the millage rate.
The tentative millage rate will apply only to the BOCC General Fund. Other funds’ rates are listed as follows:
BOCC General Fund 7.8912
BOCC Transportation Trust 0.7091
