Dover residents could see an 8.6 percent increase I their property taxes.

It’s part of the $43.6 million general fund budget that begins with the fiscal year in July.

WBOC reports that the money would go the pay for such things as additional staffing for code enforcement, street maintenance and stormwater control.

The city council voted this week to move the measure for consideration at a meeting in June.
