Hernando County commissioners approve $344.9 million budget for 2010-11

COUNTYWIDE

Commissioners approve budget of $344.9 million

With little comment from the public, county commissioners approved a $344.9 million total budget for 2010-11 after the final public hearing Tuesday. The budget, which includes a $96.3 million general fund, is partially funded by a countywide property tax rate equal to last year's countywide rate of 6.3431 mills. For the owner of a $150,000 house with the $50,000 homestead exemption, that rate amounts to $634.31 in tax to support county services. The budget can be compared with last year's total spending plan of $392.8 million and last year's general fund of $111.2 million.
