Lee County is projecting a slight decrease in its upcoming property tax rate.
The Board of Supervisors has spent the last few weeks putting together the county’s spending plan for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
The latest draft shows a $0.13 decrease in the rural property tax rate, from $11.03 to $10.90.
There would be an even larger cut to the urban tax rate from $9.00 to $8.62.
This would mark the second Lee County budget in a row to feature a reduction in both property tax rates.
