Don’t spin it… it’s a tax increase
To the editor:
Your elected city council members are going to try to spin keeping the current millage rate as “not a tax increase.” Well, overall property valuations have gone up 10% meaning your tax bill will go up if the rate remains the same.
That is effectively a tax increase.
Your city council members don’t seem to understand that just because your property values went up, it does not mean your incomes did. We are currently experiencing inflation, and many families are just getting back on their feet after the pandemic. This is irresponsible. City Council should go to the rollback or cut even lower. 2022 is right around the corner, after all.
