[ARCHIVED] City Clarification to Frederick News-Post Article on Proposed FY16 Budget

The following is the City's clarification to the March 26th article in the Frederick News-Post titled "Proposed City Budget: Water and Sewer Rates, Staff Pay Increase"

The following is from the FNP article ""Proposed City Budget: Water and Sewer Rates, Staff Pay Increase" The City's clarification follows.

FNP's statement
City of Frederick residents and property owners would pay more for water and sewer services and property taxes next budget year under Mayor Randy McClement’s proposed budget.

The property tax rate is half a cent more under the proposal, not because the city is increasing its tax rate, but because of the way the county and city calculate tax rates for city property owners.

City Clarification:
The possibility of the County raising property taxes for City residents is not part of the Mayor’s proposed budget. The City does not control what tax rate is imposed on City residents by the County nor does this tax rate have any effect on the City budget. While the City will continue to advocate for fair taxation of our residents, taxes levied by the County are at their sole discretion and are used entirely to fund the County’s budget.
