RALEIGH, NC – Wake County is proposing a $531 million bond to pay for public school construction and a $353 million bond to expand Wake Technical Community College.
“You’re adding more to the cost of families, and that’s something we ought to be concerned about,” said OneWake member Rev. Mykal Brickhouse.
OneWake is a grassroots group advocating for property tax relief.
“Is this the right time?” Brickhouse asked. “Are we going to be overtaxing people who are already heavy burdened?”
The possibility of higher taxes would come from two proposed bonds that would be on the ballot for Wake County voters in November: One for public school construction and the other for projects at Wake Tech Community College.
