PBC Budget Tentatively Approved

Posted by Paige Bresky --email

Palm Beach County commissioners tentatively approved next year's $3.4 billion budget.

The budget includes a 9.3 % increase in the countywide property tax rate.

Commissioners said they would continue to work to cut another $5 million to $10 million from the county's budget, in hopes of reducing the tax rate before the final hearing.

The final public hearing will be held September 28th.
