CARTER COUNTY, TN (WJHL) -

The Carter County Commission voted today to overturn Mayor Leon Humphrey's budget veto, which means a property tax increase will go into effect.

A county official says the 18-cent property tax increase is now final along with the new county budget.

Mayor Humphrey vetoed the property tax increase and the budget on July 18. At the time, Humphrey said more cuts needed to be made within the general fund.
