It appears Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich’s proposed 10% property tax hike has hit a major roadblock. 

The County Council President Evan Glass told FOX 5 Monday that in no uncertain terms, lawmakers will not approve Elrich’s proposed hike

Currently, there are two things we know: The 10% property tax hike is not moving forward, and Montgomery County Public Schools will not be getting the funding increase they demanded, which triggered this proposed tax hike in the first place.

Elrich’s budget calls for a 10% property tax increase to fund MCPS' $3.2 billion budget. That’s $235 million more than last year. Council President Glass told FOX 5 the council instead will approve a $215 million increase. But Glass made it clear, the 10% hike will not happen.
