MISSOULA – The Missoula County Commissioners will hold their final budget hearing Thursday. 

The county is proposing a 4.91 percent increase in property taxes. Of that increase, 2.9 percent is from voter-approved bonds issued for construction of the new Missoula Public Library.

The remaining 2.01 percent constitutes the increase in the county’s budget. The increased property tax on a $200,000 home would be $30.08 per year.

The public is encouraged to attend and provide feedback on the county budget.

After public comment Thursday, commissioners will consider the budget for final adoption at a meeting next week.

The budget hearing is at 2 p.m. in the Courthouse Annex Room 151.

The proposed final budget and all budget requests are available for review on the county’s website.
