No tax increase in proposed 2014 York County budget

The 2014 York County budget was presented during the commissioners’ regular meeting at 10 a.m. Wednesday. The proposal includes no tax increase for 2014.

“We’re pleased that there won’t be a tax increase in 2014. Everybody here at the county level has worked very hard to hold the line on taxes,” County Commissioner Chris Reilly said after the meeting. “We got a couple of lucky breaks. We did some refinancing to compensate for some shortfalls in revenue. But, overall, it was a pretty strong year.”

Last year, York County commissioners approved raising county real-estate taxes by 8.9 percent. At the time, they said federal and state budget cuts for mandated services were to blame.

Below, we have a recap from the meeting, and we are continuing to provide analysis.
