The City Council’s Budget & Appropriations Committee has set its schedule to review and act on Mayor Joe Ganim’s spending plan for the budget year starting July 1. It includes three public hearings: Capitol Plan, Board of Education and general fund. All meetings will be conducted by Zoom conference.
Ganim, at the start of Monday night’s council meeting, indicated his proposal cuts the tax rate about 11 mils from the current 54 during a revaluation year of taxable property. Most neighborhood homeowners are expected to realize a cut or flat tax rate with some potential exceptions in other areas depending on the assessments.
What happens at the committee level is generally adopted by the full council. So if you have any screaming to do, do it now.
