Leesburg -- Lee County Commissioners voted Tuesday to keep the millage rate the same as last year's.

The county's nearly three million dollar budget raised recreation, zoning, and alcohol fees by 50 percent. 

Commissioners cut a lot of the budget to keep taxes in line including extra staffing.  "It is a very lean budget, hopefully the citizens won't, their services won't-- be affected by it, but the county staff has been asked once again to do a tremendous amount more with less, it's affecting every department but I think we're up to the challenge," said Lee County Administrator Alan Ours.

The budget does include a six percent cost of living increase for county employees in November.  It's their first in two years.
