SUNSET BEACH — Three of five town council members favor increasing the town’s ad valorem tax rate at least a penny for the upcoming 2019-2020 fiscal year.

Following several budget workshops and at the town board’s April 16 meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Mark Benton and councilmen John Corbett and Charlie Nern voted in favor of going up on the ad valorem rate from the current 15 cents per $100 of valuation to 16 cents.

Council members Jan Harris and Richard Cerrato voted against the measure.
