Flag Property Taxes Set To Increase

By Elisha Dorfsmith

At a June 28, 2011 Flagstaff Unified School district truth in taxation hearing, Ken Garland, Director of Finance at FUSD informed the public that a property tax increase can be expected next year. While the number is not set in stone, the estimated figures given at the meeting show that the average $200,000 home should expect an increase of around $86.

Coconino County is also planning a 2% property tax increase next year and has a special public hearing planned on July 12 at 3:00 PM in the Administrative Center first floor meeting room at 219 East Cherry in Flagstaff.

Concerned Coconino County property owners have planned a protest against the proposed tax hike just before the July 12 public hearing. The protest starts at 2:30 PM outside the Coconino County Administrative Center (more information HERE ).

As financially strained citizens become increasingly fed up with government agencies who refuse to cut back in tough economic times, they are looking for ways to force government to spend wisely. The Prop 13 Arizona movement seeks to limit property taxes in Arizona and has been growing in popularity in recent years. Their Chairwoman Lynne Weaver recently filed paperwork to put a Prop 13 Arizona initiative on the ballot next year. They need 259,213 valid signatures by July 5, 2012. Anyone interested in signing the petition or collecting signatures should visit the Prop 13 Arizona website.
