County sets tax rate, adopts budget

The Prince William Board of County Supervisors adopted the budget and tax rate for the coming year on April 29. In adopting the budget the board agreed to a tax rate of $1.148 per $100 of assessed value. The new tax rate means that next year, the average real estate tax bill will be $3,788. That's a little more than the estimate for the current year: $3,601. The headline projects in the $990 million budget are two new libraries in Gainesville and Montclair. The libraries had been approved by voters in the 2006 bond referendum and architectural plans had been unveiled last year with an opening date in September 2015.
