Council to hold hearing on tax district

The County Council is scheduled to hold a public hearing tonight on the creation of a special tax district for the Pine Grove Village and Cottage Grove Beach communities to pay for erosion-damage repairs to the community playground.

The establishment of the Pine Grove Shore Erosion Control District, consisting of both communities, would allow the state to provide the county with an interest-free loan of $33,300 for the design and construction of a bulkhead. The wooden structure will prevent further erosion at the Pine Grove Village Playground, in the 100 block of Sandy Beach Drive.

The Department of Natural Resources will provide technical assistance.

The county will collect money through a yearly surcharge on property taxes and will then pay the loan back to the state over 25 years. The hearing will be at 7:30 p.m. at the Council Chambers, Arundel Center.
