Trenton, GA (WDEF) Dade County residents face a tax increase.

Commissioners voted to increase the rate by 1.73 mils.

They originally wanted to increase it by 4 mils, but went back to the drawing board after a public outcry.

County officials say they cut the budget again; eliminating 43 job positions.

If you own a $100,000 home, you'll pay $69 more a year.

Officials say the 2011 tornadoes and recent flooding hurt the county funds.

Dade county hasn't raised taxes in seven years.
