The Property Tax Working Group was established by motion by Vice Mayor Smitherman and Councilmembers Mann, Dennard and Young to study trends related to property taxes, especially the issue of rising property taxes in areas experiencing significant levels of development; to make recommendations to City Council aimed at helping to keep senior citizens in their homes and communities; and to report on best practices in other cities and states facing similar challenges.
