Chair of the Budget, Capital, and Personnel Committee Martha Robertson stated, “In this year of unknowns, our staff really pulled together, legislators worked hard and found common ground, and the result is a solid plan we can be proud of. This budget preserves critical services because we know folks need them now more than ever, while holding the line on the tax levy increase. For property owners whose assessments remained level, taxes are actually going down in 2021.”
