Charter; City of Waynesboro; city council procedures; real estate tax assessments. Amends the City of Waynesboro charter to authorize any person aggrieved by a real estate assessment made by the assessor of real estate to have the right to a hearing before the city assessor and to apply for an appeal before the board of equalization. The bill allows the city council to choose a date and time to meet for its July organizational meeting following an election. The bill also authorizes an ordinance wherein the city is the recipient of money, funds, or a grant to be passed upon one consideration of the city council, instead of two as is required for other ordinances or resolutions having the effect of ordinances. This bill is identical to HB 1893. Read the Bill »
