At the February 25, 2014 Board of Supervisors meeting a public hearing was held on the amendment to the Code of the County of Henrico to levy a 4% meals tax.  After the public hearing the Board of Supervisors approved the amendment to levy a 4% meals tax. The collection of this tax began on June 1, 2014.
