Hubbard County taxpayers will see only a 2.6 percent levy increase in 2011
Hubbard County officials finalized a lean and mean budget Wednesday that will result in a 2.6 percent levy increase.
But because the county's tax base has seen an overall reduction of 5 percent, most Hubbard County residents were not happy when they got their 2011 tax notices in the mail.
For many, taxes went up 10 percent and more. In a minority of cases, taxes did decline.
Hubbard County will levy $11.660 million to support a budget of $27.472 million for 2011.
