Will residents get to vote on this increase?

The property tax revenue increase is not a ballot measure. Residents are encouraged to comment on the proposed tax increase during one of three public meetings/public hearings scheduled to address the proposed increase. Two public hearings are scheduled for December 6, 2023, and December 13, 2023 (this is when it would be adopted). The County Council will vote on the recommended increase.
