The Washington county budget for fiscal year 2013-14 was approved Tuesday morning by the board of supervisors. The tax rates per $1,000 taxable valuation is 7.1265 in urban areas and 10.786 in rural areas.

This tax rate is lower than last year’s by approximately $1.

County Auditor Dan Widmer notes that differences are in part due to long term debts being paid this year, road bonds being paid off and the mental health redesign.
