Property tax rise in Frederick Co. to be discussed

May 27, 1991

The public will have its chance to comment tomorrow night on a proposed 16-cent increase in Frederick County's property tax rate.

The Board of Commissioners has recommended increasing the current rate of $2.19 per $100 of assessed value. They will hold a public hearing on the tax proposal at 7 p.m. tomorrow in Rosenstock Hall at Hood College.

Growth in the county, combined with a decrease in revenues, has presented Frederick County with some minor budgetary problems this year, Ronald L. Sundergill, president of the board, said yesterday.

"We are faced with a lot of problems of similar counties," he said. "We're in a growing county, which is causing some financial strain."

Mr. Sundergill said county officials also are discussing possible increases in various fees, and eventually imposing impact fees for new developments.
