Seymour City Council will vote tonight on a proposal to increase local property taxes by 36 cents in 2014.
The city is presenting an overall tax rate of $1.478 per $100 of taxable property, an amount nearly identical to the rate advertised for 2013. That rate eventually dropped to $1.119 once actual assessed values were calculated and reported by the state Department of Local Government Finance last February.
Mayor Craig Luedeman said he expects the 2014 rate to wind up around the same or even less than this year’s rate.
