Hamilton County Commissioners Considering Tax Hike

( Hamilton County ) - Hamilton County Commissioners are considering raising taxes to fill a budget hole, but they want to talk to citizens first. 

That's what they said in a meeting Wednesday afternoon while they discussed the possibility of public input sessions between June 4 and June 11.  This would put them on track to start putting a sales tax plan into motion next month. 

Hamilton County Administrator Jeff Aluotto said his plan, if implemented, would save the county around $19 million next year and then $38 million in the next few years. 

If the plan passes, the sales tax increase will go into effect in April 2019.
