Mary Embleton, county budget officer, said the proposed budget is $94 million and that the county is planning to take all of the available tax increases.

She said she was still working on the budget summary that would be available for the public which typically includes information on the tax impact to property owners, the major capital projects planned and other budget highlights. That document is not yet posted on the county website nor were those details discussed during the Sept. 13 commission meeting.
