exemption on city property taxes FOR Jose Valdemar Barbara Betty Lou AGAINST Mayor Stratemann Mayor Pro Tern Laverne Joe Oonnie Motion Weve had a twohour workshop on this he Weve had an open hearing in this council and weve made a Now you want to do it all over Council members then proceeded to just arguing the point for at least 30 minutes before taking the second Rustlings key point was alternative sources of She said that if the city could find a way to make more money off the tourist it could grant the 40 percent exemption without raising the property tax and therefore avoid shifting the burden onto nonhomestead Rushing specifically mentioned the Civic which now operates at a deficit and the Tube Chute in Prince Solms which is run by a private concessionnaire on a percentage The city got out of that contract last but Rushing thinks it could make more money by operating the Chute Most governments that have granted the extra homestead exemption have raised the tax rate in order to keep the overall levy the This means that homeowners get a but owners of and nonhomestead residences have to pay My biggest reason for voting against the exemption was the people who are I felt that they would be the first to get an increase in Espinoza He added that hed changed his mind after getting several phone calls from and was willing to consider Rustlings City administrators figured out that the tax rate would have to be raised from 23 cents to approximately 28 cents per to make up the revenue lost in the optional homestead if that revenue could be made up some other way Some council members appear never to have grasped what Rushing and Espinoza were Others apparently didnt think it was Weve got a contract with Hampton the Tube Chute said the fees could be But he thought that might cut down the number of people coming into the leaving more or less the same amount of Weve got several departments in the city that operate in the he addressing the Civic Center Emergency Medical Service was one that came to the mayors services that we provide for our If you want to I can think of that can go right now he Im put these things on a paying Rushing said You put them on a paying and people arent going to be able to afford to use Stratemann almost Tieken came up with another Could the city set up some kind of tax for private businessmen who profit directly from use of citymaintained properties For theres a tube rental place on every she Those businesses rent inner tubes to people who go into the city and float down the public which the city has to keep The chief problem I see with that is ad ministering It would be like a sales said City Attorney John He noted that the citys existing onepercent sales and the fourpercent hotelmotel are processed through the State Comptrollers The city wouldnt have any machinery for seeing that such a tax was Stratemann suggested a law prohibiting all tube rental agencies that werent He was apparently being but Chunn still looked Youd have all kinds of antitrust suits on why not If were going to tax why cant we just do away with and get rid of the administrative problems the mayor After
