Tonight at 6pm the city is holding a final meeting to address and vote on the proposed property tax increase. The meeting will be in the form of a public truth in taxation hearing with public input leading to a council vote on whether to increase property taxes, and if so how much (up to a 16% cap). Feel free to come down and participate – the meeting is at 351 W. Center St. Provo, UT.
I’d very much like to thank those who attended the four informational meetings held by the council to better explain how property taxes function in the city of Provo. I enjoyed attending and hearing the input from our residents on all aspects of the city’s tax policies.
As I have made clear from the beginning, I will be voting against the proposed tax increase tonight.
UPDATE: Victory! The tax increase was unanimously rejected by the council!
