Mayor Martin Needs Help To Limit Tax Increase

Facebook

When it comes time to set the tax rate for next year, the city council is expected to approve a tax increase as a result of a previous bond election.  Mayor Tom Martin does not support a tax increase beyond that.  But at this point, the mayor does not believe he has the additional three votes on the council that he needs to prevent it.

“Without having the benefit of debate or knowing what they really think, I would think there are probably two or three of us that right now would be opposed to it,” Martin said.  “We may have a majority at some point.”

Martin said he doesn’t think the mood of the electorate in Lubbock is in favor of raising taxes other than what they’ve already approved in an election.
