Millage Rate Increase

On June 2nd, the BOC unanimously voted to table a proposed property tax increase which would have increased the millage rate by 2.87 mills in unincorporated county and 3.31 mills for cities.  Chairman Charles Bannister warned residents at the meeting that the County continues to be under substantial financial stress.  More cuts to County staff and amenities such as parks and library services are expected in the future.
