Keeping Coral Springs Affordable

In 2017, the City Commission voted for an almost 23% property tax increase for the homeowners of Coral Springs. At the beginning of 2018, city voters said “no” to a seventy-five-million-dollar bond referendum, a referendum that the City Commission had asked voters to approve. In 2018 and 2019, the City Commission again voted to raise property taxes by not reducing the millage rate to adjust for property value increases. At the end of 2018, the City Commission voted to add a new fee structure for Stormwater Recovery, an expense that residents saw added to their 2019 property tax bill, and to this point has always been covered by regular property taxes. Adding such fee structures is one way that cities increase amounts that residents pay without increasing taxes, and thus by-passes homestead exemptions.
