The County Council announced earlier this month that Delaware County homeowners will see no increase in their county tax bills in 2019. The proposed budget if adopted by County Council would mark the the fifth year in a row with no tax increase.
The total proposed General Fund expenditures are $354.8 million for 2019, a decrease in spending of $2.2 million from 2018 expenditures of about $357 million. Pass-through federal and state grants, mostly to human services programs, total an additional $307.86 million.
The proposed 2019 budget is available for public inspection at the Office of the County Clerk, located on the 2nd floor of the Government Center, and can be viewed online. A budget hearing will be conducted on Wednesday, December 5, at 6 PM in the County Council Meeting Room (201 W. Front St., Media), and County Council will consider the 2019 budget ordinance at two of its regular meetings on Wednesday December 5 and December 12.
The county millage rate will remain at 5.604 mills.
In practical terms this means that the County tax will be $5.604 for every $1,000 of assessed value. For example the County tax bill for a home assessed at $100,000 would be $560.40.
