Taxes May Rise In Rome

Kristine bellino, WIBX

Rome, NY (WIBX) - After five years without a tax hike, the City of Rome might raise taxes.

The Rome Common Council held a special meeting to hear Mayor Joseph Fusco’s 2013 City Budget proposal. The Mayor is calling for a 3.87 percent tax hike per thousand assessed value in the inside tax district and a 5.72 percent tax hike for those in the outside tax district.

Those numbers equate to roughly $100 and $76 per thousand of assessed value, respectively.

Mayor Fusco says the jump in taxes is a harsh reality.

Under the mayor’s proposal, water rates will increase by nine percent and the sewer rates will increase by 2.5 percent. The Common Council will review the budget over the next few months.
