After implementing a property tax in 2015, Talty's rate remained at $0.25 per $100 of taxable valuation for several years. For 2020, the City lowered the rate to $.246654, or 24.6654 cents, per $100 of taxable valuation. The rate adopted for the 2021 tax year has been set at $0.240028. Of this, $0.119563 is proposed for maintenance and operations. The balance, $0.120465, will be dedicated for the debt service on the 2016, 2017 and 2018 tax notes issued for road maintenance and capital improvements.  Additional anticipated revenue would allow for the continued expansion of police coverage and building a city facility on two acres the City acquired on Layden Ridge Drive (CR 213). The above mentioned tax notes shall be refinanced during Fiscal 2022.
