Monroe City Council City ponders tax rate hike

Council may not accept rollback rate for 2020 budget

Posted: Saturday, July 20, 2019 12:00 am

MONROE — For the first time in several years, Monroe landowners might not enjoy the rollback property tax rate.

That rate — when the government sets property taxes at the level to bring in funding at the amount needed to bring in the same amount of revenue as the prior year — has been the standard course of business for city officials in previous years. But a sudden dip in the tax digest means City Council members are likely to change course.
