So, how does this budget compares to last years? What's the % increase in spending? What's the % increase in taxes?

Oh here we go I hear complaining already. First off there is no tax increase to the residents. Second the increase % is most likely due to maintenance and new equipment for the fire district. It's not the BOE that raises taxes because they cannot maintain a strong operating budget. Your fire tax is one of the lowest in the state and all of that is maintaining a very strong and well trained fire district. Peanuts compared to the BOE! Don't start throwing stones at the emergency services
