St. Clair Property Taxes Go Up

St. Clair property owners will be paying higher taxes in December. At Monday’s City Council meeting St. Clair officials accepted the states recommendation to raise the rate from .49 to .53 per 100 dollars of assessed valuation. City Administrator Rick Childress says when property values go down, taxes go up, and points to the sluggish economy and housing market as the reason for the drop in value. Childress also says people will not notice much of a difference from past years. The County Collectors office says real and personal property taxes will go out in early November.

I have been behind the microphone for 10 years now. In the course of time, I have covered many elections and have seen first-hand how bruising and hurtful campaigns can be to people. None have been as difficult to watch, however, as the annexation battle in Washington--which pitted good people who care about their community against good people who care about their community.
