Quote of the Week: 'I realize that a property tax increase places a burden on property owners.'

"I realize that a property tax increase places a burden on property owners."

—Mayor Madeline Rogero, proposing a 34 cent property tax increase at the unveiling of the city budget last Thursday. She went on to say, “But I also realize the burden we place on our residents when we cut police and fire service, when we let streets and sidewalks deteriorate, when we stop investing in our future.” The last tax increase came in 2004 under then-Mayor Bill Haslam.
