Pottawatomie County commissioners this week unanimously approved a $36.2 million overall budget for fiscal year 2022.
The mill levy is up a whole mill from last year. Commissioner Dee McKee explained on KMAN’s In Focus Tuesday, that it’s primarily attributed to increased personnel wages and a $1.4 million increase into the county’s Special Highway fund for future road and bridge improvements.
At Monday’s meeting commissioner Pat Weixelman voiced his support for the budget.
Commission Chair Greg Riat also supported the budget.
The full published budget is available below.
