  • Property tax funding

    I'm curious so I guess I will ask. For departments that are funded from property taxes: What % is your budget compared to the total property tax rate (County tax, state tax, school corporation, poor relief,etc.) Please indicate if you are volunteer (how many members), combination (# of total members, # of career), career (# of employees). I hope this makes sense. For example: Our total property tax bill is approx. $2.61 per hundred of assessed valuation. Our fire protection budget comprises only 3.5% of that. To me that sounds a lot lower than the national average. What is yours?

      22 Volunteer members
      Approx. 60 sq.miles
      Approx 1200 pop.

      not sure exactly the percent of the total we are but this year our levy dropped from.02625 per $100 to .02150 per $100, this is due to a nice little law known as the Hancock Amendment. In other words when the count re-assesses property values our funding does not increase,,the rate adjust so that we receive basiclaly the same amount each year.
