Taylor Countians pay many taxes to keep local services operating. And, in turn, those in charge of the services say they work to ensure tax money is spent wisely.
Tuesday marked the first day of the new fiscal year, the day the local city and county governments, along with law enforcement and state offices, begin their new budget cycles.
The city will operate on a nearly $19.6 million budget for the 2014-2015 year. That budget includes funds for general government, police, fire and rescue, 911, emergency medical services, streets, the water company and more.
