This is a community alert! Inglewood residents will be asked to vote on raising certain taxes on November 2, 2021.
The city is declaring a fiscal emergency during the August 3, 2021, regular city council meeting.
The city has a current $12 million deficit, and projects a deficit for the next FIVE years!
You will be able to watch the August 3 city council meeting on Channel 36, or on Facebook OR you can attend IN PERSON at the Library to give public comment on the matter.
Voters will be asked to vote to raise the Real Estate Transfer Tax (which is only paid when you sell your property and it’s included in the closing costs) and raise the Transient Occupancy Tax from 14% to 15.5% for guest staying in either a hotel or motel within the city limits.
Arguments either for or against the proposed tax measures are due to the City Clerk’s office by 5:00 p.m. August 13, 2021, and shall not exceed 300 words in length.
