  • Foothills again considering property-tax increase

    The Foothills Park & Recreation District board is considering asking district residents for a property-tax increase, despite tax hikes being rejected by voters twice since 2008.  

    The board on Jan. 12 discussed seeking a 1.75-mill increase in the district’s levy, which would generate an additional $1.9 million in annual revenue for the cash-strapped district. If placed on the ballot by the board and approved by voters in May’s election, the added tax would be in effect for a 10-year period.
