Polk County residents may be facing an increase in property tax if the proposed Fiscal Year 2014-2015 budget is approved by the Board of County Commissioners, who were pitched the budget by County Manager Jim Freeman at the July 15 work session. The total budget is assessed at $1,264,699,276.

Combined with revenues and expenditures, the proposed budget is an increase of 34 percent — $4,254,039, from this year’s budget of $1,260,445,237. It includes infrastructure; fire service; landfill operations; water/wastewater bills; Fleet/IT/Health Insurance; other fee-based funds; grant fund; and general fund. Freeman has called for decrease in five of those eight categories.
