Overtime costs keep going up at the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, even as the county faces a $100 million budget shortfall and another round of property tax increases for the coming year. The sheriff spent about $1 million more on OT during 2009 than the previous year. Other branches of county government spent about $2 million less during the same time period.
