Live reporting: Tax Classification Hearing

Tax Classification Hearing – 7:10 PM
Neas, Feeley, Doyle, Norman

tax rate would increase $.39 with the single rate
values are beginning to trend upwards
if the bonding had not kicked in, the tax rate would actually have decreased

Nutting - the valuations are always a lag
we have traditionally had a single rate, I see no reason to change that

Bissanti - we have a delicate balancing act between assessments and values

motion to close the hearing, seconded, passed 8-0

The full set of documents as released for this meeting agenda can be found here

(Note - be patient when opening this file, some of the pages at the end at both larger and landscape mode rather than portrait so you may need to scroll to the middle when opening the file to see the beginning pages. The tax classification hearing pages are pages 9-32)
