County Budgets

York County's 2019 budget was approved by York County Commissioners Susan Byrnes, Doug Hoke and Chris Reilly at the commissioners' regularly scheduled meeting on Dec. 19, 2018.

The plan does not increase county-levied property taxes, keeping the millage rate at 5.8. This is the second year in a row the county has held the line on property taxes.

Owners of a property assessed at $131,705 — the county average — will have an annual county real estate tax of around $762 annually.

The $574 million budget includes general fund expenses of $252.6 million.
