Anne Arundel County Council Approves Fiscal 2014 Budget

The Anne Arundel County Council approved the county’s budget this week, raising taxes and providing salary increases to employees. As reported by the Capital:

Anne Arundel homeowners will pay about $26 a year more in property taxes in 2014, but water and sewer fees won’t rise as much as previously expected after the County Council passed a $1.3 billion budget on Tuesday.

The water and sewer rates were originally scheduled to increase by 5 percent next year, but the council slashed $10.2 million from the utilities fund, paring down the increase.

The operating budget — about 7.1 percent more than last year’s budget- also includes 3 percent raises for all county employees, which several councilmen said was a high point.
