After voting to table the issue at last week’s public forum, the Washington County Board of Supervisors has unanimously approved $8 million in General Obligation Bonds to pay for the County’s share of a $12 million secondary roads improvement project. County Auditor Bill Fredrick says the Board exercised authority given to them by a 2009 amendment by the state legislature that allows the county to “undertake projects, including roads [and] bridges … without having to have a vote if they’ve received a presidential disaster declaration.” Rural residents will pay 78%, city residents13% of the $8 million dollar general obligation debt. County Treasurer Jeff Garrett says based on last year’s numbers, a $150,000 rural residential property would pay “about $100 a year”, a similar city residence would pay $35 and an average 40 acre track of land would pay $38. He says the estimates are “conservative” and actual tax amounts could be lower.
