  • County’s tax asking down in 2009-10 budget

    In these times of economic recession and budget belt-tightening, Mills County is lowering its tax asking for next year, according to the county's 2009-2010 budget.

    The county's tax asking is down slightly from last year's $5,652,813 to $5,486,731 this year, meaning Mills County's $12,461,544 budget is about $400,000 less than last year.

    Not bad considering the current state of the economy and the fact the county didn't have to eliminate any programs, said Joe Blankenship, president of the Mills County Board of Supervisors.
