Albemarle Board of Supervisors raised taxes for the second year in a row.  The 2014 rate of 79.9 was raised to 82.9 for 2015.  The Board of Supervisors raised taxes more than the professional non-partisan County Executive asked.  Several non-governmental agencies, including the Legal Aid Justice Center, the Municipal Band and Virginia Cooperative Extension Service received funding.
