FARMINGTON — As Davis County leaders continue to create the calendar year budget for 2013, it is expected the $90 million-plus budget will come with no property tax increase.
“We’ll come in under budget again this year. Our projections are that we are fine there. We are not going to spend more money than we take in, that’s for darn sure,” Davis County Commissioner John Petroff Jr. said.
The total budget is likely to be in the $94 million range, he said.
Since Oct. 9, county leaders have been meeting with department heads to discuss the proposed 2013 calendar year budget. They have met in open budget meetings on 10 occasions.
The next time county leaders are scheduled to meet to discuss the budget will be 8 a.m. Tuesday at the new Davis County Administrative Office building, 61 S. Main St., in Farmington, according to information released through the commission office.
The preliminary budget is expected to come before the commission in November, said Terry Tremea, Davis County chief deputy clerk/administration.
The county will hold a public hearing on a proposed final budget at 6 p.m. Dec. 4 in the administrative offices building.
“We’ve pretty well got the budget balanced,” Clerk/Auditor Steve Rawlings said.
He said Tuesday’s budget meeting will be the last one.
