In Sleight of hand we discussed the fact that city council voted to set next year’s tax rate at 88 cents per hundred dollars of valuation.
The next day they published in the Times a different rate of 90.73 cents which is the maximum allowable without triggering our opportunity to call a roll back election.
Today’s (Tuesday, August 6, 2019) city council agenda includes the first of two required public hearings before raising the tax rate.
How much are they asking for?
If you guessed 90.73 cents you are correct.
We deserve better
