2% More Property Tax and $1 More For The Garbage Man
City residents in Bristol Virginia could be paying more taxes and fees if next year's budget becomes reality. The city council started discussions and now the public will chime in with comments and opinions about the budget at a public hearing on Tuesday May 28th. A two percent property tax increase and a dollar more for garbage collection will make up for lower property assessments according to city leaders. Some council members wanted more as the proposal will only bring in just over 200- thousand dollars and this will only re-establish past property tax rates. The higher garbage fee will add nearly 90- thousand to the city coffer. (bg)
