Proposed County Budget has No Property Tax Increase

budgetThe Coffee County Commission will meet on June 28 to take its first vote on the Fiscal Year 2017 budget.
The Coffee County Budget and Finance Committee is proposing a budget with no county property tax increase.
After a 20-cent increase in 2015 the county now has a fund balance of $2 million. A big portion of the revenue is coming from the county receiving money from the state for housing their inmates at the new county jail.
The meeting is set for Tuesday (June 28) at the Coffee County Administrative Plaza, 1329 McArthur St at 6pm.
