Chamber members and friends,
A concerned chamber member, a wide-ranging Development Company, asked that we share a message with you…
In the very near future, the County Council will be approving our FY24 budget, the largest budget ever and the largest increase we’ve seen in several years.
The budget supersizes County government by $330M, creating a $145M structural deficit next year all while our population is decreasing. This is property tax hike being sold as necessary to fund our schools. However, there are ample available funds available in the current budget to fully fund schools, by example:
No other jurisdiction in the Region (or DC) is raising property taxes – even as they all significantly increase school funding.
Please use this link to email your concerns to your County Council members: https://www.stopthemocotaxhike.com/
Thank you, and please share this link with your family, friends, and neighbors.
