Baker lays out proposed PBC budget for 2017

Palm Beach County Administrator Verdenia Baker laid out a proposed budget for 2017, which would hold property tax rates steady and include more than $594 million in funding for law enforcement.

Because of rising property values, taxpayers would pay more. Baker has said the county needs the additional revenue to continue providing residents with expected levels of services.

County commissioners will set the property tax rate on July 12 and then hold a pair of public hearings – one on September 6 and another on September 19, when the final budget will be adopted.
