(KSL News) Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon is threatening to veto parts of next year's budget.

It's something Corroon has never done before in his three years in office.

The Deseret Morning News reports Corroon says the Salt Lake County Council's unanimous approval of the $811-million budget could result in a tax increase, because the budget adds $3 million to an already shaky fund.

The biggest issue of disagreement is the $1.3 million the council added to District Attorney Lohra Miller's budget, which ignored Corroon's compromise of just $1 million.
