Dade County Tax Increase Approved
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.
