Adams County plans to hold a public hearing this evening on a proposal to raise the county's property tax levy.  

That hearing will start tonight at 6:30 in Courtroom 2D of the County Courthouse. The County wants an additional 650 thousand dollars in revenue for the upcoming fiscal year, starting in January. The County says that for 2018, it collected $9.975 million. For 2019, it wants to collect $10.624 million. The County says that's about a 6.5% increase. This summer, the County Board had to take a short-term loan to cover expenses before property taxes started being paid in July.
