Tax hike fails in wake of resident opposition


City of Greenville

After much opposition against the proposed tax hike, Greenville City Council voted to lower it by a half-cent.

During the city council meeting, councilmembers heard the opposition toward raising taxes. Greenville City Secretary Carole Kurkendall said everyone except Mayor David Dreiling voted to reduce the tax rate by one-half cent to $0.652162 cents per $100 valuation, $0.41548 for maintenance and operations and $0.236704 for principal and interest on debts of the city.

The new tax rate will begin Oct. 1, 2018, and will be considered delinquent after Feb. 1, 2019.
