EL CENTRO — Salaries and benefits for county employees use the bulk of the general fund, and a large percentage of that fund comes from appraisals of real property.

The Imperial County Assessor’s Office is reporting valued property in Imperial County increased by 4.54 percent to a little more than $13.3 billion from last year.

With the current increase in property taxes...shouldn't the county be more diligent in maintaining county roads? We already pay an exorbitant amount each year and for what?? I don't see any improvements or new projects just more taxes for nothing. Between the County and the gas tax and now penalizing people without health care for 2020..no wonder people are leaving this place.
