Nashville Metro Council Member Proposes 16% Property Tax Increase

Councilmen Bob Mendes proposed a 16% property tax increase in order to better fund Nashville schools, employee raises and make up for the budget revenue shortfall, the Tennessean reports. The proposal challenges Mayor David Briley’s proposed budget, which does not include an increase in property taxes. Budget talks will continue among the Metro Council, and Mendes’ alternative budget is slotted for a second reading on June 4. The Metro Council will vote on a final budget on June 18.
