Town Hall #16

Property taxes

Yesterday, today & in the future?

Wednesday, March 24, at 4:30 PM

During past Town Halls dealing with education, mental health, DART, county & municipal budgets, and other public sector services, inevitably the question arises, does funding necessary public services by taxes on property make sense?  How did we get here and what does the future hold? vibrant community has multiple efficient, affordable, and accessible transportation options.

Topics considered:

  • Where did property taxes originate?
  • How have they changed over the years?
  • Where do we stand today?
  • Do property taxes make sense?
  • Efforts at controlling increases.
  • Dialog
