The County Perspective: County Gov't Month, State Budget and Local Property Taxes
Time for County Officials to Weigh in on the State Budget
With seven working days until the beginning of the 2017-18 State Fiscal Year, joint legislative budget conference committees are negotiating details of the final state budget, Counties are encouraged to contact their state representatives with their concerns and to contact the members of conference committees on issues of concern to all counties.
 
Among other priorities, Counties are calling on members of both houses to REJECT proposed cost shifts to public health and social services. These cost shifts will increase costs to counties and property taxpayers. They are also reminding lawmakers of the importance of Modernizing Internet Sales Taxes and the 911 Surcharge to keep our emergency dispatch centers up to date with new technologies.
