Leesburg Budget: 19.5¢ Tax Rate?
The Council begins work on Town Manager John Wells’ proposed budget.
The Leesburg Town Council work sessions on the proposed FY 2014-2015 Budget and FY 2014-2019 Capital Improvements Program begin today, March 9, with a starting proposed real estate tax rate of 19.5 cents per $100 of assessed value.
The work session—which takes place in the second floor Council Chamber at the Leesburg Town Hall, 25 West Market Street—begins at 9 a.m.
For those who are interested but do not wish to attend, the work session will be broadcast on Leesburg’s government access cable TV channel (Comcast Channel 67 and Verizon FiOS Channel 35) as well as via webcast on the town’s website.
Public hearings on the budget are set for March 12 and April 8, with approval of the budget and tax rate expected during the council’s April 9 meeting.
