SHEPHERDSVILLE - It came down to a tie and mayor Scott Ellis knew what he had to do.
To fulfill the obligations promised to creditors and to meet budget expectations, Ellis voted in favor of a 4 percent tax increase on real property owners in Shepherdsville.
On a $100,000 home, the increase from 14.3 cents per $100 of assessed property to 15 cents will result in an increase of $7 to $150 a year.
In making his tie-breaking vote, Ellis said there was really no choice.
