City Council rejects property tax cut
Last night the Tampa City Council rejected a proposal by a citizens advisory group to reduce property taxes in the city, and instead voted to keep it at the same as last yearâs level.
The Citizens Advisory Group suggested reducing the property tax rate by 5 percent, and covering the $8 million in lost revenue with money from reserve funds.
But the Council rebuked the groupâs idea on a 6-1 vote. Councilmember Mary Mulhern was the lone dissenter.
The Citizens Advisory Council was made up of representatives of the community named by each council member except Thomas Scott.comments powered by Disqus
