Barbour Commission announces levy rates

PHILIPPI – The Barbour County Commission finalized the property levy rates for the 2014-2015 fiscal year at Tuesday’s

meeting.

The class one property levy rate will be $13.34 per $100. For class two, the rate will be $26.68 per $100. For both classes three and four, the rate will be $53.36 per $100. Those rates were approved by the West Virginia State Auditor’s office, County Administrator Jeff Rogers said.

Commission President Tim McDaniel noted only a slight increase over last year’s levy rates, which he said was not due to an increase on the part of the Commission.

“We have kept our levy rate as low as possible,” McDaniel said.
