There has been news about a significant tax increase, 60 percent, to Brunswick County residents.

In addition, there is an increase to the already high personal property tax. The funds are to be used for a deficit and school related benefits from what I understand.

We do own a home in Brunswick, planned to retire there, but with this increase, we’re weighing our options and may just cut our losses.

There’s a couple of hearings coming up. It would be great to see coverage in the paper.
