The Henry County Board of Commissioners voted today to increase the 2013 property tax millage rate by 2.75 points from 11.75 mills to 14.50 mills.
Commissioner Warren Holder made the motion to raise your property taxes with Commissioner Reid Bowman seconding the motion. The motion to confiscate more of your money in property taxes passed by a vote of 4-1 with Commissioners Holder, Bowman, Holmes, and Stamey voting on favor.
Congratulations to Commissioner Brian Preston for attempting to protect the taxpayers with his NO vote.
While the vote was actually a tentative increase, the final millage rate will be set after three additional public hearings on the matter later this month.
