2013 budget

Salt Lake County’s tentative 2013 budget, as adopted Tuesday by the County Council, would:

» Require a 16.2 percent property tax increase to fund countywide services, down from Mayor Peter Corroon’s proposed 17.5 percent increase.

» Cost the average homeowner about $59 more per year, down from the mayor’s $64 plan

» Completely restore wage cuts county employees took in 2009 because of the recession, but would not restore the county’s 2 percent contribution to their 401(k) plans.

» Include two sizable projects not in the mayor’s budget — $1 million for the Living Planet Aquarium in Draper and $250,000 for an underpass serving Dimple Dell Park in Sandy.

» Dropped nearly $500,000 in funding in Corroon’s budget for a new-media center at Salt Lake Community College.
