The Alliance for a Better Columbia will be host of a community meeting Saturday to discuss ways to combat the sharply rising Columbia Association assessment fees.
The annual assessment charges, based on property values, have increased an average of 33.4 percent in east Columbia after homes there were reassessed last year.
The meeting will be held at 1 p.m. at the east Columbia library, 6600 Cradlerock Way.
The alliance, a watchdog group, has invited Dels. Shane E. Pendergrass, Elizabeth Bobo, Frank S. Turner and Neil F. Quinter; state Sens. Sandra B. Schrader and Edward J. Kasemeyer; and members of the County Council.
