Supervisors to Discuss Budget, Concealed Carry Law

10/18/11 – The Dodge County Board of Supervisors will get its first look at the full 2012 budget at their meeting tonight. In August County Administrator Jim Mielke introduced a preliminary budget that would keep the tax levy the same as the 2011 budget, but due to a 2.2-percent decrease in county property values the mill rate would go up 12-cents to $5.52 per $1,000 of value. Mielke stressed at the time the number were only tentative and would likely change by the time they presented the budget tonight. The board is also expected to entertain a policy restricting citizens from carrying weapons into buildings owned by Dodge County. That’s in response to the concealed carry bill approved by the lawmakers earlier this year that goes into effect November 1st. The board meets at 7:30 at the Administration Building in Juneau.
