Mayor Says Zero Tax Hike Sends Important Message
In the end, not many property tax bills in the city of La Crosse are going to stagnate this year. But there is that one line that reads, zero percent increase. That's the city's portion of tax bills. And that zero hike in property taxes has been a priority for mayor Matt Harter since he took office. Make it two years in a row that the mayor's delivered. More than anything, he says, the lack of a levy increase sends a message that city hall is on the same side with the taxpayers in La Crosse. He also says the zero percent property tax levy hike is not an accomplishment of his, necessarily, but one of the city council for working towards a zero increase.
