Stay Informed - Tax Advisory Committee and Headlee

On April 9, 2024, the Board of Commissioner finalized the establishment of the Tax Advisory Committee to explore resetting the general fund operating millage which has been reduced due to Headlee and Proposal A. This committee may recommend to the Board of Commissioners that a reset not happen, or they may; this committee has that authority. After a recommendation is made, if it is, it ultimately lies with the Board of Commissioners, on whether or not ballot language is created.
