Final public hearing on Hernando County budget is Sept. 28


Public hearing on budget is Tuesday

The Hernando County Commission will have the final public hearing on the county's 2010-11 budget and property tax rate at 5 p.m. Tuesday in the commission chambers of the Hernando County Government Center, 20 N Main St., Brooksville. Commissioners will consider a total spending plan of $345.9 million, with a $96.3 million general fund. That compares to the 2009-10 total budget of $392.8 million, with a $111.2 million general fund. The countywide property tax rate is proposed to remain the same — 6.3431 mills. For the owner of a house valued at $150,000 with a $50,000 homestead exemption, that rate would amount to a tax bill of $634.31 to pay for core county services. The new fiscal year begins Oct. 1.
