No tax increase is generally good news.
That’s the case for the Wayne County Board of Supervisors, who say taxpayers shouldn’t see an increase – if the tentative $200.3 million spending plan becomes law.
It’ll be the first time in five years that a tax increase isn’t included in the annual budget in Wayne.
That’s a good thing, for residents already dealing with higher cost of living amid record-breaking inflation.
“The plan is to keep the tax levy flat,” County Administrator Rick House said. “We’ve got a healthy fund balance, and the sales tax projections are good.”
