No tax hike say supervisors

After several weeks of paring and poring, adding and adjusting a torrent of numbers, the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors expects to have a budget proposal of $119.16 million in total expenditures ready for a public hearing and comment from taxpayers at the panel’s next regular meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

In going over budget requests, supervisors denied more than $900,000 in budgetary increases.

Budget highlights include:

No tax increase, as county departments were urged to turn in flat budgets and limit requests for increases.
