Mohave County Supervisors settle on budget

There will be no increase in the property tax rate and no additional funds for the sheriff’s department

After a record-setting nine-hour meeting that included comments from nearly 50 citizens and four proposals that failed, the Mohave County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 Monday evening to pass the final budget for next year with no increase in the property tax rate and no additional money for the sheriff’s department.
