Email News Alerts

Alexandria taxpayers should prepare for another property tax increase.

At its meeting Monday night, the Alexandria City Council approved a preliminary 2011 budget that calls for a tax levy of just under $5.3 million - an 8 percent increase from this year's levy.


The amount is preliminary and doesn't mean everyone's property taxes will increase that much.
