It's a booming area, and now it might be time to pay the price. Beaufort County residents may soon be paying more property tax.
The county administrator, Gary Kubic, is asking for about a six percent tax hike to make ends meet. That means, if your house is valued at $100,000, you'll be paying about $6 more a year in property taxes.
"The most important thing for people to know is, as the population grows, the need for essential services has been a burden on our capability to live within our growth," Kubic said.
There was a public hearing yesterday on the $71 million budget. There will a second vote Monday and final approval June 27.
