Spending up less than 1 percent in tentative 2018 Seneca County budget

Seneca County Manager John Sheppard has done his job, presenting a tentative 2018 county budget to the Board of Supervisors and the public.

It is now up to the board to turn that into a final budget, starting with committee meetings Nov. 28 and ending with budget adoption Dec. 12.

The budget calls for minimal increases in spending and property taxes, thanks to an increase in sales tax and gaming revenue from del Lago Resort & Casino.

“This budget maintains the level of public services typically expected, with a few notable exceptions,” Sheppard wrote in his budget message, adding that the budget remains compliant with the state tax levy cap requirements.
