FY 2012-13 Proposed Budget and Multi-Year Capital Plan
The promises I made to this community were fulfilled for fiscal year FY 2011-12, and the proposed budget for FY 2012-13 continues to deliver on those promises. This is a responsible budget that reduces the tax rate, further cuts property tax revenues, maintains the same levels of service, and avoids further employee layoffs.
A key promise was to reduce the burden on our taxpayers. Days after taking office, I proposed the FY 2011-12 Budget that took the total property tax rate back to FY 2009-10 levels. This was the largest tax cut in County history. We developed a budget that would sustain operations for two years without increasing the tax rates and without additional concessions from our employees beyond those included in last year’s plan.
The FY 2012-13 Proposed Budget further reduces the tax rates by a combined two percent, to offset the growth in property values. This Proposed Budget includes $4.3 million less in property tax revenue than the FY 2011-12 Adopted Budget, and saves taxpayers more than $405 million over two years.
