Post Falls To Seek 2% Tax Hike

Item: Time to trim: Post Falls plans 2 percent property tax hike amid revenue decline/Brian Walker, Press

More Info: Keck said the city will see an overall decline in revenues due to the recession, but the budget includes a proposed 2 percent increase (3 percent is allowed) in the local property tax rate that will generate $182,506 more than the current year.

Question: Should local government increase taxes in the current recessionary climate?
