Increase in property tax; public hearing. Changes the notice required by a governing body for a public hearing when a reassessment of real property in a locality would result in an increase of one percent or more in the property tax levied. Current law requires notice to be published at least 30 days in advance of a public hearing through both publication in a newspaper of general circulation and posting in a prominent location in the building where the government body conducts its business. The bill would require newspaper publication at least 25 days in advance and would continue to require notice in the government building to be posted at least 30 days in advance. Read the Bill »
