‘Tighten the budget,’ town council is told
If Urbanna’s proposed town budget is adopted, resident Jim Ray’s town real estate taxes will have increased 93% in two years, he told the Urbanna Town Council during Monday’s budget public hearing. Ray said his Urbanna real estate taxes increased 75% in the 2008-09 budget, and the proposed 2009-10 town budget calls for a 10 percent real estate tax rate increase—from 20 cents to 22 cents per $100.
