The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors spent the morning talking about the future financial strength of the County. The work session provided an opportunity for the Supervisors and County staff to plan for long range capital needs such as new libraries and school renovations. Planning for the future also helps the Supervisors keep a close eye on the tax rate.
"We have one of the lowest tax rates for any county of our size or larger in the State. Although we weren't talking about taxes, it's this kind of advanced planning that helps us keep our tax rate steady," said Samuel Miller District Supervisor Sally Thomas.
If the Supervisors decide to have a bond referendum to finance some of these improvements, it will be on the November 2008 ballot.
