The Albemarle County Board of Supervisors is hoping to decide on a property tax rate in a Wednesday afternoon work session, set to start at 3 .pm.
The proposed rate is four cents lower than last year's rate, but still increases the budget by millions of dollars.
Supervisors disagree about the current rate of 70 cents.
"There have been members of the board who have been interested in a possible lower rate," explained county spokesperson Lee Catlin. "There's also been a member of the board who has been adamant about keeping the rate at a higher place, so that will be what the discussion today will be about."
The board has to adopt a rate by April 15th. They have no other work sessions planned between now and then.
