Notice of Public Hearing on Tax Increase

Please note: the City Council has proposed a tax rate for tax year 2021 that is lower than the tax rate for tax year 2020.  The notice is titled “Tax Increase” as required by law because revenue generated from property tax will increase due to new properties added to the tax roll and increases in appraised values.
