Tax hike proposed in North Lauderdale

July 17, 2011|By Lisa J. Huriash, Sun Sentinel
  • The tax rate is likely to go up in North Lauderdale, and condo owners could pay more for fire service.
This year's tax rate is being tentatively set at $7.75 for each $100,000 of assessed value — up from $7.23 last year. The owner of a house assessed at $80,000, with a $50,000 homestead exemption, would pay $232.51 in city property taxes, up by $15.
Fees for fire service are expected to change. The budget proposal calls for single-family homes to pay $169, down from $228. Multi-family homeowners, including condos and townhouses, will pay more $363 instead of $358.
City officials said there are no planned cuts in staff or service levels and no money coming out of reserve funds to balance the budget.
Public hearings are set for 5:30 p.m. Sept. 14 and 7 p.m. Sept. 22.
