Yavapai County Free Library District has announced its intention to raise secondary property taxes over last year's level.
The library district is proposing an increase in secondary property taxes of $620,017 or 16.1 percent.
The proposed tax increase will cause the YCFLD's secondary property taxes on a $100,000 home to increase from $16.42 to $19.07, for example.
This proposed increase is exclusive of increased secondary property taxes received from new construction, according to a news release. The increase also is exclusive of any changes that may occur from property tax levies for voter-approved bonded indebtedness.
All interested citizens are invited to attend a public Truth in Taxation hearing on the tax increase scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 1, at the Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, 1015 Fair St., Prescott.
A courtesy hearing also will take place at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 20, in the Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, 10 S. 6th St., Cottonwood.
