NO CRA doesn’t mean tax cuts
August 10, 2006
One more thought before I go to sleep:
Stop Our City wants voters to believe that if the Community Redevelopment Agency is abolished, then their property taxes will be cut by the County.
It won’t happen. Escambia County hasn’t cut its property taxes in over a decade. This year they have $31 MILLION increase in property tax revenue and they still are NOT going to cut the taxes.
If the County won’t do cut your taxes when they have $31 million extra, don’t expect the commissioners to rebate you any of the $2 million if the CRA is abolished. Your downtown property tax dollars will go to protect a beach mouse on Perdido or pave a dirt road outside of Century.
