Tis the season…
For cities to decide how they’ll spend your taxes.
Budget workshops and council meetings are being held in cities throughout Central Iowa (many tomorrow, December 12th) during which your local governments will discuss the budgets for Fiscal Year 2018 spending. Do you believe your city is spending YOUR taxes as you’d choose to spend them? An hour or two of your time can raise your awareness of where exactly your money is going – and raise the awareness of taxing authorities that taxpayers are paying attention to where those dollars are going.
We invite you to check out your city’s calendar (link provided below) to find out your next opportunity to put your 2 cents behind your property taxes. The Taxpayers Association recommends calling to confirm time & location – for instance, Des Moines’ budget workshops aren’t listed on the same calendar as its council meetings – so it never hurts to check.
