For the past couple of weeks, councilors listened to the public weigh in on whether a property tax levy on the May ballot is the way to go.
Some residents say they would be willing to pay a little more to preserve vital city services. Others say they’re already getting taxed too much.
The city isn’t the only entity looking at a property tax levy. Lane County and 4J are also looking at their own levies.
The city says if it doesn’t find a way to close the budget gap, city services will be cut.
You may recall councilors voted to table a vote on an ordinance that would have pushed a stormwater and parks fee into the budget discussion.
A work session is also scheduled for Wednesday. Councilors must make a decision by then.
