INDEPENDENCE — Only two citizens turned out for a public hearing about a proposed tax increase on real estate in Independence — and neither was in opposition.
Town council held a public hearing Tuesday on a proposed 10.2 percent increase in the real estate tax rate from 12.7 cents to 14 cents per $100 valuation.
The increase will bring in an estimated $11,000 additional to the town and cover a $10,000 deficit the town faced after deciding not to pull funding from Independence Rescue Squad.
