County Budgets

York County's 2020 budget was approved by York County Commissioners Susan Byrnes, Doug Hoke and Chris Reilly at the commissioners' regularly scheduled meeting on Dec. 18, 2019.

The plan increased county-levied property taxes modestly, with a 0.1-mill tax hike. The extra millage would amount to $1.63 million and be used to buy 2,500 acres, or about four square miles, of open space annually for protection from development.

The average assessed value of residential properties in York County is $133,498, so the average homeowner will pay an additional $13.35 per year in property taxes.
