Anti-tax hike signs popping up in Fairway

Signs encouraging residents to voice opposition to Fairway’s proposed tax hike have sprouted up around the area.

Fairway sent an email to residents yesterday giving them an update on the budget process, and outlining the cost cutting measures they’d taken to reduce the proposed tax rate increase from 8.766 mills to 6.508 mills (the calculations we made following the finance committee meeting last week were slightly off — the new proposed tax rate is 19.361, not 19.45).

The Fairway governing body will hold a final hearing on the budget next Monday, August 9 at 7 p.m. at city hall.
