Tax Hikes To Go Before Borough Voters

Aug 2, 2018

The Fairbanks North Star Borough assembly has approved 2 proposals to go before voters this fall, aimed at funding a building maintenance backlog. The ballot measures, approved at a reconvened assembly meeting last (Weds) night, propose raising property taxes above the tax revenue cap. As KUAC’s Robyne reports, the ordinances include a trimmed down bond package, and a 6 year tax hike to create a building maintenance fund.
