New property taxes for the growing City of Murfreesboro equal more money to operate the police, parks, codes departments and more. Councilman Ronnie Martin...
Martin suggested the old adage of "Growth Pays for Itself" is just not accurate.
The council recently approved a property tax hike that amounts to about a 35% increase. Now, a group against the hike is speaking out and suggesting the increase was too great. The group is known as TNrising.org. Some of the monies to be collected in the future will help to pay for trash services as the life of the landfill comes to a close in the next 5 to 7 years.
