Commissioner Jones has remained fiscally responsible with your tax dollars, even when tough decisions had to be made.
Since 2013 he has proposed and our county taxes have look like this:
FY2014 Rollback Rate 0.535292 per $100 val
When Commissioner Jones took office the county was in a $8.9M budget DEFICIT; although this rate was a 5.51% increase, this increase was necessary to keep the county bond rating positive and to keep the county solvent.
FY2015 Stay 0.535293 per $100 val(with the requirement that each county department cut 5% to 7% of all spending and/or duplicate staff.)
FY2016 Cut of .02 cent 0.515108 per $100 val
FY2017 Cut of .01 cent 0.505293 per $100 val
FY2018 Effective tax rate 0.505293 per $100 val
