In a 2-1 split decision, the Board of County Commissioners agreed to publish the County’s FY2023 tentative operating budget with Commissioner Van Beek opposed citing the need for additional evaluation of the proposed $12,000/person increase in salaries. Board Chairwoman Smith said the proposed $12,000 increase is still under consideration and is encouraging citizens to provide constructive solutions on this sensitive topic. The FY2023 tentative budget includes a property tax request of $40 million, which is $14 million less than was levied for the current fiscal year.

It should be noted that the tentative budget approved for publication does not necessarily reflect the County’s actual operating budget that the Commissioners will approve following the August 17 public hearing, which is now continued to August 19 at 2 pm. The publication of the tentative budget sets a not to exceed number of $137,454,141, so changes can still be made to lower the total operating budget before it is approved by the Commissioners.
