Signal Mountain votes to raise taxes

Posted: Updated:

SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, HAMILTON COUNTY (WRCB) - Signal Mountain property taxes are going up.

Town council voted last night to raise taxes 10% or 15-cents per $100 of property.

While the budget includes higher taxes, it also includes a two percent pay raise for town employees.

The last property tax increase was in 2001.

The town manager said without the hike, they faced a $300,000 deficit because of higher costs for insurance, fuel and 911 services.
