Highlights from the February Regular County Board Meeting

Published on February 24, 2018

 

The Arlington County Board today took action on nearly two dozen items at its February Regular County Board Meeting. Highlights included the Board approving the advertisement of the property tax rate for Calendar Year 2018, and approving a contract for a Columbia Pike bike boulevard project. By law, the tax rate the Board adopts in April, when it adopts the Fiscal Year 2019 Budget, cannot be higher than the advertised rate. Here are some of the highlights.
