The Flagstaff City Council is poised to raise the city portion of your property taxes and has the authority to raise it by as much as 12% this year. Several months back council agreed to raise taxes the maximum allowable under AZ law. That’s 14% over a two year period. So the agreement, although not formally voted on yet, was to raise it 7% this year and 7% next year.
Flagstaff City Councilman Scott Overton was the lone no vote on the property tax increase.
The other 6 members, lead by Mayor Coral Evans and Eva Putzova were joined by Celia Barotz, Jim McCarthy, Jamie Whelan and Charlie Odegaard in agreement over the two year maximum 14% increase.
The bigger shock will most likely come from anticipated fee increases that will most likely get little attention, except of course on the Jeff Oravits Show. Plus don’t forget that July 1st, the minimum wage is also increasing to $10.50. We’ll discuss this and more Monday at 3PM.
Tune in to the Jeff Oravits Show Monday-Friday at 3PM.
