TAX RATES AND OTHER LEVIES

 

The Proposed Budget for Fiscal Year 2022-23 provides for maintaining the current real estate tax rate of $1.20 per $100 of assessed value for tax year 2023.  The Personal Property Tax rate for tax year 2022 will be reduced from $3.50 per $100 of assessed value to $3.10 upon approval of an ordinance by City Council.   All other local tax rates will remain the same as levied on January 1, 2022.  Water and sewer rates will remain the same; however, a proposal for a solid waste/recycling rate increase will be presented and a public hearing will be held at a later date. 

Copies of the Proposed Budget are available online at www.colonialheightsva.gov and available upon request by emailing boshern@colonialheightsva.gov or calling 804-520-9265.

All interested persons are invited to participate in the public hearing, at which time an opportunity will be given to them to be heard.   Written comments submitted to the City Clerk prior to the public hearing will be provided to City Council.  Contact the City Clerk at wallacep@colonialheightsva.gov or call 804-520-9360.

Any interested party whose participation in this meeting would require reasonable accommodation of a disability should contact the City Clerk, at 804-520-9360 at least six days in advance.
