The Johnson County Board of Supervisors on Thursday unanimously approved a $97.7 million budget for next fiscal year.

The budget for the year that starts July 1 sets the tax levy for property in unincorporated areas at $10.15 per $1,000 of taxable value, an increase from the current $10.08.

The levy in cities will be $6.74 per $1,000 of taxable value, which is about half a cent more than this year.

The owners of a $100,000 home in rural Johnson County will pay $552.11 in county taxes next fiscal year, up $11.03 from this year. Homeowners in cities will pay $366.75, an increase of $15.21 in Iowa City and $16.14 in other cities.

Owners of $100,000 worth of rural agricultural land will pay $8.46 more next fiscal year, while a $100,000 rural agricultural building will see the same increase.
