The Washington Post Sunday - - COMMUTER - — Pa­tri­cia Sul­li­van

The Arlington County Board agreed Saturday to ad­ver­tise a prop­erty tax rate in­crease of no more than 2 cents per $100 of as­sessed value to help pay for school en­roll­ment growth and Metro.

The board won’t ac­tu­ally set the rate un­til later this spring, af­ter work­ing through the bud­get and hold­ing a pub­lic hear­ing.

The board also agreed to set a March 30 pub­lic hear­ing on rais­ing its pay by 3.5 per­cent, about the same amount county em­ploy­ees are due to re­ceive un­der the county man­ager’s pro­posed bud­get. The board has not had a pay raise in four of the last six years. The pro­posal would in­crease the salaries of most mem­bers to $53,282.
