We already know the Total Property Tax Rate for 2016 (includes Muni, School & County taxes) of $5.056 will be increased in 2017 by 5.6-Cents for the School tax increase, 3.4-Cents for the County tax increase and .001-Cent for the County Open Space tax.
That brings the Total Property Tax Rate for 2017 here in Downtown Edison up to $5.147 without the Muni & Library tax.
So, where's Mayor Tom 'Now 13.7%' ChoiLankey gonna take the 2016's Muni-tax rate of $1.269 this year - Up or Down?!?
Anyhoo, let's count the days until we can see the 2017 Muni Budget. Hopefully, we won't again have to get Estimated Property Tax Bills for August 2017. And, if the last 3 years history above is any example of the Council's review of Senior Lankey's 2017 budget, let's skip the dog & pony show of processing the mayor's paperwork. It's time well $pent - Not.
