Property Tax Increase? Not Yet

taxesCoffee County commissioners met on Tuesday night with a property tax increase on the agenda along with a resolution under unfinished business about placing a referendum on the November ballot concerning a motor vehicle tax or wheel tax.
Commissioners decided not to vote on the 27-cent property tax hike. They instead voted to have an emergency meeting on August 12 at 6pm, 5 days after the Coffee County elections. Commissioners will not be paid to attend the August 12 meeting.
Commissioners on Tuesday did approve for voters to decide on a motor vehicle tax or wheel tax. On the November ballot voters will have a choice to say yes or no to a $50 wheel tax.
