Tax Levy Considered in Mineral County

August 26th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

Mineral County officials have scheduled four public meetings to explore placing a tax levy on the ballot to upgrade and construct recreational parks in the county.

The proposed 1% levy on resident property taxes was discussed at Tuesday’s meeting of the Mineral County Commission.

Plans would include acquiring land along state Route 46 near Fort Ashby or along Route 28 in the Wiley Ford/Short Gap area to construct a park that would include a walking track, pavilions, playground, bathrooms, dog park, splash pad and space for pickleball, basketball and sand volleyball.
