Fort Bend County Commissioners Tuesday will consider 9.4 percent salary increases for a number of county offices -- including commissioners -- and 11.3 percent increases for county court and law judges.

These are contained in the proposed 2013-2014 fiscal year budget.

There is no over-all tax increase proposed when combining the two major funds -- the general fund and the Fort Bend County Drainage District fund, according to County Auditor Ed Sturdivant.

The total tax rate currently sits at $0.49976 per $100 valuation and is proposed to remain the same.

Commissioners will be taking their first formal look at the 2014 budget at 1 p.m. at the William B. Travis Building.

The new budget takes effect Oct. 1.

The preliminary figures reveal a slight increase in the general fund, from the current 0.48076 per $100 valuation to $0.48476 per $100.
