Butte County Adopts $6.5 Million Budget for 2018

The Butte County Commission recently approved its budget for 2018, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The $6.5 million budget is 4.2 percent higher than the previous year’s budget. In 2018, $2.4 million will be allocated to general government, while 1.8 million will be allocated to public safety to include the county jail, coroner, and fire protection. Public works will receive an allocation of $1.3 million and $1.1 million will go toward public health and welfare.

While the overall budget for 2018 increased, the tax levy in Butte County is anticipated to be lower in 2018. The proposed tax rate of 4.194 per $1000 valuation decreased by 2.8 percent over 2017 figures.
