Cantrell Administration: No Plans To Make Another Attempt At Renewing Taxes

Mayor LaToya Cantrell may not make another attempt at getting voters to approve a set of property taxes next year.

In an email sent out Monday, Cantrell Communications Director Beau Tidwell said that there are no current plans to go back to voters with additional millage initiatives in 2021.

According to reports, if the administration allows the millages to expire at the end of the year, the city will lose more than $23 million which is crucial to avoid cuts to city services.

Despite the administration's lack of interest, the City Council could move forward with its own proposal and get it onto the ballot without the administration's active involvement but it's unclear whether council members will be able to come up with such a plan.

The uncertainty comes just days after voters shot down Cantrell's plans to reconfigure the expiring taxes into four new ones for the next 20 years.
