City Hall update: Property tax relief

City takes aim at property tax relief

The City Council on April 29 diverted $2.8 million from street paving projects into a “property tax relief account” that might quell a property tax hike for homeowners in 2012.

Council Member Betsy Hodges (13th Ward), who authored the tax relief account, said $2.8 million is the equivalent of a 1 percent reduction to a tax hike. For example, if the city needed to raise the tax levy by 3 percent, $2.8 million would reduce that increase to 2 percent.
