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.
