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.
0.535293 per $100 val
(with the requirement that each county department cut 5% to 7% of all spending and/or duplicate staff.)
