Lancaster Budget Approved.

Lancaster County has finalized its budget with a significant tax rate increase of 22% approved by the Board of Supervisors. Despite some dissenting voices, the $51.2 million budget was passed after intense deliberations. The increase comes alongside reassessment adjustments, leading to mixed reactions from residents and officials. The move aims to address various county needs, including education and infrastructure, while also offering greater tax relief for the elderly and disabled. The decision, however, sparks concerns about affordability and fiscal responsibility.
