GF County Budget

Sep 20, 2012 at 12:26 pm

Thanks in part to an anticipated five-percent increase in the value of the mill levy next year Grand Forks property owners will see a slight reduction in the county portion of their tax bill.  The county commission this week gave preliminary approval to a 2013 budget that reduces next year’s bill by one-point-seven mills.  County Administrator Ed Nierode says that will save the owner of a 100-thousand dollar home seven-dollars-65 cents.  The spending plan includes a one-percent pay bump for employees and  money to implement a market level wage study.   In addition Nierode says the budget includes a one-million dollar capital improvement fund for future projects.  The county is expected to give final approval to the budget a hearing on October 2nd  (6pm).
