Council Sets Tax Rate

The residential tax rate in Springfield  is being kept the same.  

City Council made the  decision to follow the recommendations of Mayor Domenic Sarno by a  10-to-2 vote on Wednesday.  

The commercial tax rate will increase by two  cents for every one-thousand dollars of property value.  

The council  was originally scheduled to vote on the recommendations on Monday but  delayed the decision after hearing from concerned residents and  businesses.

The rates mean that the average residential customer will see their taxes increase by little less than a hundred bucks because valuations have increased.
