Glendale City Council approves secondary property-tax hike


The Glendale City Council on Tuesday warned residents that tax increases are better than the alternative.

A five-member majority, including Mayor Elaine Scruggs, approved a secondary property-tax hike and add a two-tiered sales-tax rate that exempts purchases over $5,000 from an already approved sales-tax increase.

The secondary property-tax increase, which will be $1.68 for every $100 of assessed value, will appear on resident's bills in October while the sales tax will have customers pay 2.2 percent on large purchases rather than the 2.9 percent increase approved earlier this month. The sales-tax hike is effective in August.
