The purpose of the public hearing is to receive public input on an Ordinance proposed for passage to amend Chapter 11, Taxation, Article II Real Property Tax.

Proposed new section 11-70 would provide for real property tax relief for any veteran who has a 100 percent service-connected, permanent and total disability, and would also allow a surviving spouse to be eligible to qualify for the exemption. Proposed new section 11-71 provides the method for application of exemption for disabled veterans or their surviving spouse. These provisions have been enabled by State Code; however, have not been provided for in the County Code.
