Potter County commissioners hosted their first public meeting to discuss next year's tax increase in our area.
You'll remember, commissioners voted in favor of a 2.5% tax increase for property owners.
Commissioners say the added revenue will pay for a new fire truck and a new fire station.
They say they're also looking into upgrading the county's software system.
Commissioners will meet again on September 9 for the final vote on the new tax rate.
