Talk Corvallis Taxes With City Club on March 11

Property taxes and local government budgets will be up for discussion at City Club’s monthly lunch program, Monday March 11, from 12-1:15 pm.

How can cities cover expenses when property taxes fail to make ends meet? Corvallis City Council is considering public safety taxes; some cities have explored fees as an alternative revenue source.

City Club will address these issues on Monday with invited speakers, discussion, and Q&A. The first speaker is from the City of Corvallis: Nancy Brewer, Finance Director, will discuss the city’s current fiscal outlook and the 2014 budget process.

The second speaker is from the League of Oregon Cities: this speaker will address local government fiscal health across the state.

The meeting is free and open to the public. Catered lunch is available for $10. City Club meets in the Banquet Room of the Renaissance Building, 136 SW Washington St.
