Tax rates proposed for next year

Tuesday night will be the public hearing on County Administrator Charles M. Culley Jr.’s proposed budget for the next fiscal year.

Initially, Culley proposed a budget with a 12 cent real estate tax rate increase. That would raise it from 72 cents per $100 of assessed valuation to 84 cents per $100 of valuation.

But in a budget work session last week, the Board of Supervisors found ways to possibly shave one penny off the increase.

Here are the tax rates advertised for the public hearing:

Real estate 72 cents/$100 of assessed valuation

Personal Property $3.80/$100 of assessed valuation

Minerals 84 cents/$100 of assessed valuation

Personal Service Corporations:

Real estate: 84 cents/$100 of assessed valuation

Personal Property: $3.80/$100 of assessed valuation

Machinery and tools: $3.50/$100 of assessed valuation

Motor carrier: $3.50/$100 of assessed valuation

Here is the proposed budget. 

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday and public hearings begin at 7:30 p.m. The meeting will take place at the Community Services Center, 17202 Richmond Turnpike.

The Board of Supervisors will have a joint work session with the School Board at 5 p.m.
