Tax and spend zone

Here’s a few details that are part of the equation for this monetary dilemma. Lake Monticello was conceived and approved as a vacation home development (hence the small lots). Fluvanna County planned to reap the benefits of huge tax revenues from the thousands of homes to be constructed here because the Lake community would maintain its own water/sewer system, security and roads.
We all know how that turned out. Fluvanna County put no restrictions in place that would have ensured that any changes to the Lake Monticello development concept would face a re-approval process. The lure of low taxes along with the perks of golf and boating prevailed; Lake Monticello became a prime bedroom community for Charlottesville. Today Fluvanna County is a tax and spend zone with no end in sight with the county’s debt service consuming over a third of our tax revenue. If it’s futile to rail against utility rates and taxes, so be it. But water pipelines loom on the horizon and money wasted is not spent, it’s simply poured down the drain.
(Editor’s note: Supervisors are now advertising an 8.5 cent hike)
