Unicoi Co. Leaders Shun 30-Cent Property Tax Hike

It appears as if Unicoi County residents will not be seeing a nearly 30-cent property tax increase, this after county commissioners yesterday nearly unanimously agreed that option will not be put on the table.

The county faces nearly a million dollars in unfunded budget requests.

Although the consensus seemed to be to simply give county offices the same amount as last year, there are added expenditures that can’t be avoided, like paying for the November election and adding ambulance service.

Another budget work session is set for next week.
