Placeholder Image
Finance Committee members rejected a 19-cent property tax decrease Thursday night that would have reduced McMinnville’s tax rate to $1.90 and cost the city $380,000 in annual revenue.The measure to leave the tax rate at $2.09 passed 2-1 with Aldermen Billy Wood and Clair Cochran voting in favor of it, and Vice Mayor Everett Brock voting against it. Prior to the vote, Brock predicted it would be an uphill battle. “I know I’m going to be outvoted on this, but I would like to roll it back,” Brock said.
