No Automatic Departmental Inclusion in Proposed Tax Increases

The Home Rule Charter prohibits any county departments or boards being automatically included in any proposed tax increase.
This is not currently the case in Lincoln County.

The Home Rule Charter requires that any proposed tax increase would have to stand on its own merits.

No other county department or board would benefit by having the proposed increase doubled.
