The Prince George’s County Executive has recently proposed to raise property tax rates by 15% for the first time in 35 years and includes layoffs and furloughs, all to free up more funding for schools, public safety and economic development.

Above are links and a 28-page document on the proposed budget. The website address immediately below has a 30-minute video on the budget and the full budget documents.

The City has invited our County Council representatives to come and discuss the proposed tax hike at the April 7 worksession. I will let you know if it’s confirmed.
