Town Hall #14 – February 14, 2021

“Open Mike Wednesday”

Let’s Talk Property Taxes

Preliminary changes in property assessments were presented at the Open Membership Forum prior to the Association’s annual meeting.

Examples of residential increases: Des Moines – 10.63%; Windsor Heights – 10.79%; Ankeny – 6.38%. Other increases: multi-residential – 22%; industrial – 19.6%; commercial – 9.2%.

Unless property tax levies are reduced these increases will show up on August property tax bills. What are the alternatives?

The mike will be open for your reactions…
