IMPORTANT NOTICES

TRASH COLLECTION

Due to the storm and road closures on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 trash was not collected on Springfield Meeting House Rd and Arneys Mt. Birmingham Rd.  The trash collection for these two roads will be either Thursday, August 6, 2020 or Friday, August 7, 2020.

TAX News = GOOD News:  No increase this year

 

2020/21 Tax rate (2.983) vs. 2019/20 tax rate (2.981) = Average tax rate of 2.98

 

This is the 3rd consecutive year with the same overall tax rate of 2.98

For various reasons, Covid-19 included, estimated bills were used for the August 1 payments (2020 3rd quarter). 

Because these estimates were high, the 4th quarter billing will be lower than last year’s 4th quarter to compensate.

Final billings will come well in advance of the November 1 payment.
