Over the objections of citizens calling for a flat budget, the Monmouth County Board of Freeholders approved a $305 million tax levy, a 2.6% increase, in a bi-partisan 4-1 vote, according to the Asbury Park Press.
Republican Freeholder John Curley was the lone vote against the increase. He said, "our residents have cut back on spending and so should we. We are taxing the people of this county to death, and it is unacceptable," according to the APP.
