Other jurisdictions have made the tough decision not to increase compensation. Fairfax County proposed no market rate increase and a decrease of 1 penny in real estate tax rate. City budget proposes $700000 in compensation increases and an increase of a half penny in the tax rate. One penny is just over $680000. Forego the raises and tax rate could be reduced at least a half penny - still likely more revenue but better for homeowners
Coupled with a 6% increase in sewer rates (which is about 2/3 of the water/sewer bill) - and which is not deductible as a local tax, it is unsustainable for owners. It doesn't matter what you call it - sewer rate increase or tax increase, it all comes out of one pocket and nothing more is going into that pocket to pay. Make the hard choices.

When will the Maple Hill neighborhood have the sidewalks completed? It's a critical part of connecting our children to bus stops safely and all residents to parks and the city center downtown.
