Sumter County commissioners voted to increase property taxes for the first time in 14 years. The millage is jumping about 24% to $6.70 per $1,000 of assessed value. 

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.
