We had noted that the 2011 tax ordinance was introduced at the 09/06/2011 meeting of the jury. That ordinance is up for final adoption Monday night.
We had also noted that for the second consecutive year, the “V-Vehicle Tax” levied in 2009 was not being collected. However, the tax monies collected for tax year 2009 for that purpose has yet to be refunded as promised.
