FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Senator Arthenia Joyner, chair of the Hillsborough County Legislative Delegation, has announced that the Delegation will meet on Tuesday, June 5, from 6 until 9 p.m. at the University Area Community Center Complex gymnasium, 14013 North 22 Street, to hear from local governments and the public on the issue of property tax reduction.
In announcing the meeting, Senator Joyner said, “Members of the Legislature have been hearing from our constituents about ad valorem taxes; however, we now also need to hear from our four local governments and the program and service cutbacks or the creation of fee-driven programs and services that can be expected under the various scenarios which have been advanced to date.”
Time has also been allotted to Property Appraiser Rob Turner who served on the prior Governor’s tax panel and who has advanced recommendations on making tax relief viable. Time will also be available to residents of unincorporated Hillsborough County or one of its cities in an effort to discover possible alternatives to the plans already on the table in Tallahassee and to hear which programs and services would be willingly sacrificed or for which fees would willingly be paid.
