Money For Land & Roads

Question Title

1. The Beaufort County Council is considering a $50 million bond issue for land and water quality protection. Funds will be used to continue acquisition of natural lands and farmland throughout Beaufort County. Passage of this ballot question would result in an increase in local property taxes of about $1.50 per month or $18 per year for an owner-occupied home assessed at $250,000. Knowing only what you now know, if presented with this question on the November ballot, how would you vote?

Knowing only what you now know, if presented with this question on the November ballot, how would you vote?
