New Henry County budget increases with no new taxes

The upcoming budget for Henry County will increase by almost $11.5 million from the current year and include no new taxes, but Henry County Administrator Tim Hall warned the Board of Supervisors that next year tax hikes will be expected in order to take on the increased cost of reversion, the Martinsville Bulletin reported.

Hall did not include money to fund a new position requested by the board – a public information officer – and the board voted to have Hall fund the position.
