Commissioners vote 2-1 to reduce mill increase

August 17, 2009

After taking a large bite out of the 2010 budget and still ending up with a proposed 1 mill increase, it appears as though the commissioners will be taking a bite out of that as well.

The one mill increase was proposed to pay for a new EMS headquarters.
