Burleigh Commissioners lower property taxes
BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - That same home value of $270,000 elsewhere in Burleigh County will see a $5 decrease in property taxes.
County commissioners approved their preliminary budget Monday night, which includes a change in the sheriff’s job description and a pay increase. Since the sheriff also acts as a detention administrator for the jail, commissioners included that in the description and will set the pay to match.
“He never asked for this. I want that to be perfectly clear. Sheriff Leben never ever breathed a word about more pay or an increase in pay,” said Jim Peluso, commissioner.
Commissioners managed to make cuts in the county budget to reduce the mill levy, but maintain operations.
