Montgomery County commissioners called for no additional funding this year, keeping the eight-year renewal levy at 6.03 mills, the current level. If voters pass this year’s renewal, known as Levy B, the owner of a home valued at $100,000 would continue to pay about $185 per year in property tax, according to the county auditor’s office.
Voters in November 2014 approved a measure for Levy A that added 1 mill. At 8.21 mills, Levy A generated about $74.2 million in 2017.
