Well they got us again.
In Maximum tax increase from the city we pointed out that while city council took a preliminary vote to increase our property tax rate to 88 cents per hundred dollars of valuation they simultaneously published notice in the Times that they would increase the rate to 90.73 cents.
When it came time to finalize the budget they used the 90.73 cent rate. Three of the members that are up for re-election voted against or vetoed the increase.
Note that we did not hear much explanation as to why they voted against the increase.
It seems that they were only concerned with what their vote would like to the voters.
We deserve better
