With the old thread on this subject being quite long, I got a request to create a new one for those of you who still want to discuss this.
On Tuesday, the City Council approved in a 5-4 vote a tax levy that is estimated to raise the tax rate by two cents per $100 of assessed valuation. For the owner of a $400,000 home, it only represents and increase of about $25, but that doesn't mean everyone is happy about it.
Councilman Grant Wehrli noted that even though the council expects to abate the increase once it property assessments are issued, it will still result in a tax increase of nearly $1 million.
No one likes to pay more taxes, but do you think it's worth it to preserve city services and city jobs?
