Cecil County Young Republican Club: County Commissioners Will Not Raise Taxes This Year

The Cecil County Young Republican Club is reporting that the County Commissioners plan to not raise “taxes for the first time in more than a decade.”   Here’s the news they’ve posted on their web-site.

 Cecil County Young Republican Club ———

We have learned that the County Commissioners intend to keep the budget in check this year and not raise taxes for the first time in more than a decade.  Commissioners Demmler, Lockhart, Tome, Mullin, and Hodge should be commended for the work they have done and will do as we bring this year’s budget process to a close.

Time will tell whether this development will hold true though.  The Cecil County Commissioners still have to wade through more hearings and final pleas from department heads, but if the Commissioners hold fast–Cecil County taxpayers will benefit.

  1. Thank you for your post. Just to be clear we did not post anything on our website that said that the County Commissioners plan to not raise “taxes for the first time in DECADES.” Key word here is decades. We said for the first time in “more than a decade.” We know it was more than 10 years, but we do not know if it was DECADES as you report. We have yet to get the full documentation for decades past.

    Please see the following link to see the documentation that we have on years of tax increase budgets in Cecil County:

    Also, let me reiterate that we applaud the Commissioners for making this decision.

  2. Ted, fixed, decades changed to decade. Thanks for the correction and for publishing this piece of news on the web.
