[VIDEO] Monday, the Mason County Commission approved the County’s budget for next year. The 2020 budget totals $119,896,959 with $49,581,229 in Current Expense. Budget Manager Jennifer Beierle ran down the numbers prior to the public hearing on the budget.

The budget includes over $13.2 Million for the Sheriff, $2.2 Million for Community Development, nearly $1.3 Million for District Court, almost $1.7 Million for the Prosecutor, just shy of $2 Million for Juvenile Probation, and $4.2 Million under Non Departmental.

No one testified during the public hearing on next year’s budget but the County Commissioners were pleased with the process.

Last week, the County Commissioners did approve a 1 percent increase in property taxes that will be collected in 2020.
