Tax talk turns testy at council meeting; conflict of interest question raised
A discussion about Alexandria Housing and Redevelopment Authority's proposed tax levy turned testy at Monday night's city council meeting.
The HRA requested to impose a tax levy in 2014 that will not exceed $207,900 or 0.0185 percent of the city's taxable market value. That's the maximum amount allowed under state law. This year's HRA levy was $207,250.
HRA Director Jeff Hess said the levy is needed to make up for federal funding cuts.
