Special Meeting Thursday Sept. 17th 5:30

There will be a special meeting on Thursday Sept. 17, 2009 at the Marble Hill City Hall. The topic will be setting tax rates.

On Monday Sept. 14  there was one Alderman absent and I voted no on the raising of tax rates. Therefore the measure did not pass.

However the City, by law, must set the rates before November.  The City and I differ on the subject of raising tax rates.

I called the State Auditor’s office on Monday Sept. 14  and was told that the City DOES NOT  have to set the rates at what the state suggested, but the City can not set the tax rate highter than what the State Auditor’s office has suggested for this year.

It is my feeling that given the fact that we nearly lost Crown Chevrolet this year,  we should avoid similar situations, by keeping taxes where they are at for the time being, and not raise them.

Citizens and Business owners who do not want their property taxes to go up again should be at City Hall at 5:30 pm on Thursday Sept. 14, 2009 to voice your opinions on this matter.
