Sumter County Residents Face Property Tax Hike

The increase will help pay for services like roads and fire services in a rapidly urbanizing county.
Sumter County administrator Bradley Arnold joins Intersection to explain why commissioners decided to increase taxes now, and how services will be paid for in the future.
