Thanks for Eight Square; county budget

The Journal has been pretty quiet on Dryden so far this week, with a thank you for supporting the Eight Square Schoolhouse Festival from The History Center yesterday.

There was also an article on the county budget that seemed to leave commenters thinking that a 20% tax increase was coming though the article states that it's a 2% tax levy increase. I don't think the interaction between assessments moving back to 100% from 85% valuation and the overall tax rate is as simple as a 15% increase - but I'll confess that I don't entirely understand how it works. I suspect, however, that the tax levy math is correct.

This morning's paper has an article on possible additions to the county budget.
