Res­i­dents urged to be­ware of tax in­crease

Record Observer - - Opinion - Centreville

Res­i­dents of Centreville need to be aware that two of the three Town Coun­cil mem­bers have in­di­cated that they are lean­ing to­ward rais­ing taxes. There has been dis­cus­sion of as much as 6 cents over the con­stant yield rate of 37 cents in some form. This rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant in­crease to res­i­dents.

Sev­eral res­i­dents have been at­tend­ing Town bud­get hear­ings since March and have made mul­ti­ple sug­ges­tions of pos­si­ble cuts with­out much suc­cess. Fur­ther, the Town Coun­cil has not pro­vided any real for­ward vi­sion for the town to jus­tify such in­creases.

If you are not in fa­vor of an in­crease, now is the time to no­tify Town Coun­cil mem­bers or at­tend Town Coun­cil meet­ings to voice your opin­ion. You can reach them by email through the town web­site, TownofCen­tre­ville.org.
