To: Salina City Commissioners and the Saline County Board of Commissioners
Purpose: Stop proposed property tax increases by the Salina City Commission or the Saline County Board of Commissioners. The undersigned taxpaying citizens of Salina and Saline County object to any increase in the property tax mil levy. While both the City and County may cite inflationary pressures as one reason to increase our taxes, we too are under the same inflationary pressures. As taxpaying citizens, we are asking our respective commissioners to:
• reexamine budget proposals for 2014
• look for additional ways to reduce spending
• consider generating additional revenue by liquidating assets or publicly held property
• please move your meeting times to 6:00 p.m. when voting on the final budget for 2014
Say NO to increasing our property taxes.
