Jefferson City Council discusses property tax rate
Friday, August 3, 2012
Confusion about whether the Jefferson City Council could increase the property tax levy this year lead to discussions of a potential special Finance Committee meeting.
At the City Council meeting Monday, a public hearing will be held on the property tax levy and a bill will be introduced for the council to set the levy for the year. However, confusion about whether the property tax rate could be increased led to several council members questioning why the issue had not been presented to the Finance Committee.
Finance Committee Chair and 2nd Ward Councilman Shawn Schulte said he would like to try and schedule a special committee meeting in the next two weeks to discuss the property tax rate, before any decision is made by the full council.
