ELIZABETH – The City Council passed a non-binding resolution this week that calls for the city’s school board to consider cuts to reduce a projected 7.5 percent increase in property taxes, according to an NJ.com report.
The average property owner would see a tax hike of about $200, according to the report.
Because the school board has not raised taxes since 2010-11, they are able to exceed Gov. Chris Christie’s two percent cap.
