Pownell wants to raise our taxes

What is common sense again for 2015 is the same as was in 2014, a 0 percent property tax levy increase. My at-large City Council opponent Rhonda Pownell moved and voted for an increase last year of 2 percent when a 0 percent levy increase was proposed in resolution 2013-108. She was one of only two councilors that voted for an increase. The resolution that ended up passing easily was the 0 percent levy increase. At that time we had a healthy balance in our city’s general fund. The State Auditor recommends 35 percent to 50 percent of the city’s budget to be held in reserve. Last year, our reserve was approximately $7 million with a budget of roughly $10 million. Comments (0)
