Taxes in Franklin County are going up as county leaders deal with a nearly $6 million shortfall.
But not as high as they could have.
On Tuesday, the board of supervisors voted to increase real-estate taxes by two-cents per $100 assesed value.
The original plan called for a three-cent increase.
Personal property taxes will also jump an extra 15-cents, instead of the proposed 25 cents.
The lower overall increase will leave Franklin County about $1 million short, money the school system was lobbying for.
