The Johnson County Board of Supervisors approved the county budget for fiscal 2012 on Thursday.

Supervisors lowered the overall tax levy on all Johnson County residents and businesses to $6.99 per $100,000, down from $7.23 last year.

Rural taxpayers will pay $10.08, down from $10.40.

The levy on Iowa City taxpayers increased by 1.8 percent but ended up being lower than the original increase of 8.5 percent.

The total budget of $76,653,349 will fund various county necessities, such as the Joint Emergency Communications Center.

Additional staffing to the sheriff, county attorney, auditor, and medical examiner departments will also be funded by the budget.
