HURLEY — Members of the Iron County Board of Supervisors passed the county’s 2024 budget on Tuesday evening.

Projected expenditures for general government and all other operations total nearly $18 million, with slightly more than $12 million covered by revenues other than property taxes.

Hence, the tax levy for 2023 — which will be collected next year — will be $5,656,748. That will result in a 2024 millage rate of $4.32 per every $1,000 of assessed property.

Board members Kurt Wolff and Karen Lauer voted against the motion to approve the budget.
