The Johnson County Board of County Commissioners today adopted the county’s fiscal year 2019 budget. The 2019 budget totals $1.097 billion, composed of $815.9 million in expenditures and $281.2 million in reserves.
The BOCC approved a total estimated county mill levy of 25.973 mills – a decrease of 0.378 (0.322 decrease for the County Taxing District, 0.027 decrease for Johnson County Library Taxing District and 0.029 decrease for Johnson County Park & Recreation District Taxing District.) This includes an estimated mill levy of 18.996 for the County Taxing District, 3.894 mills for the Johnson County Library taxing district and 3.083 mills for the Johnson County Park & Recreation District taxing district.
