Mathews County BOS Starts Budget Talks

The Mathews County Board of Supervisors met last week discuss their goals for the Fiscal Year 2023-2024 budget. The Gazette-Journal reports the meeting began brief presentation outlining what the supervisors might expect from the budget for the school division. County Administrator Ramona Wilson says the board will need to adjust the real estate tax rate this year because of an expected 25 percent increase in the overall value of properties due to the ongoing reassessment, which is expected to be completed soon.
