Alachua County Could See Lower Taxes
County commissioners are looking at ways to reduce some taxes, while still paying for some big projects. On Tuesday, the county heard a presentation on how to proceed with the budget preparation.
Florida lawmakers in Tallahassee are working to deal with the state's skyrocketing property tax troubles. And so are commissioners. If the property tax is reduced or eliminated, it will mean millions of dollars lost to the county. That means a lot of decisions need to be made by the county.
There are also a number of issues when it comes to revenue. The county is in need of several million dollars in road projects. They also need revenue for the jail project and among other things.
Budget discussions are expected to last through September.
