On November 4th, New Hanover County residents will have the chance to vote on a $164 million bond referendum. The bond would be used to build three new buildings at Cape Fear Community College. If voters approve the bond, it would ultimately add five cents to every $100 of county property taxes. The timing of the proposed tax increase has some New Hanover County residents concerned. “I believe that it's a good thing to support education, but on the other hand with the increase of five cents for every $100, that's a lot of money and until the economy turns around - that's just not a good idea,” said Anthony Bennett, a New Hanover County resident. If the bond is passed, the new buildings will be dedicated to training in health, technology and general studies.
