Fluvanna Budget Surprises

By. William Des Rochers, Fluvanna Field Officer

The conservatives on the Fluvanna County Board of Supervisors stunned most observers — including the School Superintendent — by cutting the school budget by over $2 million and setting the real estate tax rate at $.5981 per $100 of assessed value.  The current rate is $.58.  Previously the supervisors had entertained a rate of $.68.  The last minute decision even caught one supervisor by surprise, having learned of the new proposal at 11:15 am on Wednesday.

More details will follow.
