AUBURN — The 3. 3% property tax increase in the first draft of the 2021-22 Auburn city budget may be disappearing. After receiving input from city councilors following the original budget draft presented April 8, City Comptroller Rachel Jacobs presented a revised proposal to the council Thursday that eliminates the property tax levy hike and closes a gap between spending and expected revenue.
It's work for our public works departments, and some of those retailers think of it like we're providing them a service to go pick up the shopping carts and either (return) to them or put them in a safe place until they have time to do it. "Councilor Terry Cuddy supported adding that fee to the budget, while Giannettino said he would be willing to hear suggestions. "We have to make it enough that it makes sense for them to employ, maybe, their own folks to take care of that," he said. The city manager also referenced property clean-ups that have taken place in the city recently.
