The budget will require tax rates of rural areas to pay $8 per thousand of values while urban areas will pay $5 per thousand taxable values. This is a 1.5-cent higher increase per thousand of value. Countywide levies are $2,814,198 while rural only levies are $1,307,872.
Other business on the Board's agenda was the approval of a Master Matrix scoring for Open Range and D & J Pork farms.
The Board approved the hiring of a new employee for the Cherokee County Treasurer's office and authorized a wage adjustment for the Treasure's office. Authorization was also given for a new employee for the Cherokee County Auditor's office. Those two new employees will be hired in the near future.
