Dodge County Board Gets Preliminary Budget

9/20/17 – Dodge County taxes could stay fairly level in 2018. The Dodge County Board saw an early version of the budget at their meeting last night. County Administrator Jim Mielke says the $111-million-dollar document includes a tax levy of just over $33.8-million dollars, up $500-thousand from the current year. The proposed mill rate of $5.49 per thousand would be close to two cents less than the number homeowners saw last December on the county portion of their tax bill. The budget does include a health insurance premium increase of five percent. The finance committee will hold budgetary sessions next week and will present the document to the county board on October 17. Final adoption is slated for November 14.
