ERIE — Property owners in Erie County could be paying more taxes in 2010.

Erie County Executive Mark DiVecchio said his proposed 2010 county budget would include a tax increase of at least 0.5 mill, according to the Erie Times-News.

The DiVecchio administration plans to release its proposed budget to Erie County Council Thursday.

If approved, a 0.5-mill tax increase would mean the owner of a property valued at $100,000 would pay an additional $54 a year in taxes. The increase would bring in at least $5.9 million in revenue for county government.

Job cuts could be on the horizon, too.
