County Council OKs 2013 budget

Delaware County Council approved the 2013 budget, which includes a 2.8 percent tax hike, at its meeting Wednesday morning.

The proposed $330 million spending plan calls for a millage rate of 5.452, which is an increase of 0.15 mills or 2.8 percent, according to county officials. An average taxpayer with a home in the county assessed for tax purposes at $130,000 would therefore generate a county property tax of $708.75 — an increase of about $19.75 over the prior year. Last year, council approved a 2.3 percent tax hike.
