County Budget in the Hands of Supervisors

by

SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - The 2014 Sheboygan county budget is now in the hands of the county board.  County Administrator  Adam Payne told  supervisors Tuesday night that the county is proposing to collect 46-million dollars in property taxes next year to fund the 126-million dollar budget.  As proposed, the tax levy will increase by nearly 2 percent for only the third time in seven years.  It will mean a county tax rate of $5.60 per thousand of equalized valuation - an increase of 19 cents per thousand, primarily due to decreasing property values.  Payne said the budget includes only a 1 percent increase in payroll, it will fund borrowing for some major projects - including the combined dispatch center and a new emergency radio system - and it uses no cash reserves.  The public hearing on the budget is set for next Tuesday with final approval to follow one week later.
