Floyd County Supervisors Likely to Set Tax Levy Monday
How much the proposed property tax levy will be in Floyd County for the 2022-23 fiscal year could be set Monday.
The Floyd County Board of Supervisors held a public hearing on the proposed max tax levy last week with about 20 citizens in attendance opposed to property tax increases of as much as 24%, as was being proposed going into the hearing. However, supervisors tabled any decision on the levy to examine the County budget closer in hopes of lowering that tax increase.
One concerned citizen said she understood that the rate is likely to go up because of inflation and to cover rising wages, but…
Supervisor Roy Schwickerath, who was set to vote no on the max tax rate originally proposed last week, offered a reminder that the tax the county collects is separate from other taxes people may pay.
The board also fielded complaints that the public hearing was held at 9 a.m. when so many taxpayers had to work.
While there is no official public hearing on the max tax levy today, the supervisors meeting has been adjusted to 4:30 p.m. this afternoon in the EOC of the new Floyd County Law Enforcement Center.
