City Council Vice Chairman Jared Grifoni wrote in an email it is important the city continues to look "for ways to keep money in our citizens’ pockets and for local government to be small and efficient to meet the needs and priorities of our community."  

"I am proud that for every year I’ve been on City Council we’ve been able to reduce our property tax rate to rollback," he said. "Over the last four years our property tax rates have now been reduced by approximately 14%."

Grifoni said there is another benefit in adopting the rollback rate four years in a row. "In the event that future increases were ever proposed by other councils, the amount you can go up on a year to year basis is capped based on how many votes you have in support," he said. - Read more here: Marco Eagle, 7/23/20
