STANLEY — The Town of Stanley will hold a public hearing on proposed tax increases for the upcoming fiscal year at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11 at the town office on Main Street.

The town recently advertised its proposed tax rate on real estate for FY23 at $0.28 (per $100 of assessed value) — a 12-percent increase over the current rate of $0.25.

Proposed tax rates on personal property or other levies imposed by the Town were not listed in the advertisement published last week. However, members of the Stanley Council have discussed the potential for increases to water and sewer rates for the upcoming year to meet rising costs.

Much of the planned increase in the real estate tax is aimed at helping raise the salaries of town employees, as well as meet the rising costs of providing town services.

Wednesday evening’s public hearing will be held at the Town Office, located at 278 East Main Street. Those who are unable to attend the public hearing may submit comments by email to Town Manager Terry Pettit at [email protected] or by phone at (540) 778-3454. All comments submitted in time, will be read at the council meeting.

Citizens of the Town of Stanley are encouraged to attend the May 11 public hearing and express their views on the proposed tax increase.
