Sullivan County Expecting Final Budget July 16th
The Sullivan County Budget Committee needs thirteen votes to approve the 20-cent property tax increase they say they need but some believe the proposal lacks cuts in the budget. Others say the proposal is not fair to county employees who do not get raises while school district employees are getting them. Most people want to find ways to save money before increasing taxes like employees paying more for health insurance like other cities have done. After a month of discussion the Budget Committee adopted the proposal for a 9-percent increase from the current property tax rate but the Budget Committee will meet again before presenting the final proposal to the full commission July sixteenth.
