YORK COUNTY — The York County Board meeting held on Tuesday, May 2 ended with approval of the 2024 fiscal year budget and a tax relief for citizens.
“Considering all of the factors discussed in this memo and many others, I believe we can achieve a responsible, balanced budget while recommending a further reduction of the real estate tax rate from 78 cents per $100 of value to 77 cents per $100 of value,” stated County Administrator Neil A. Morgan in an open letter to the board, “I would further recommend a reduction in the personal property tax rate from $4 per $100 of value to $3.90. This would be a small, straightforward reduction rather than some kind of rebate or ‘temporary’ alteration of the Commissioner’s assessment formula as some other localities have implemented.”
The motion was approved in a unanimous decision by Supervisors Green, Noll, Roane, Zaremba and Board Chair Shepperd.
According to Stephen Roane, York County District 4 Supervisor, “This was the finish line of a 10-month collaborative process to identify the important funding needs to keep York County operating through the next fiscal year.”
