MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - Supervisors in Lauderdale County have approved a $58.7 million budget for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1.

WTOK-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1m04ntg) the budget does not provide for an increase in taxes.

But county officials say property values are up slightly and more revenue is expected.

County Administrator David Engel says supervisors dipped into cash reserves to avoid raising tax rates.

He says the county was facing higher costs for employee insurance, operations at the county jail and for fuel.
