friday. It's May 23rd. Since last night -- we're hearing from MORE Jacksonville City Council members -- after they saw the tentative pension reform agreement for the first time. They're weighing in on whether they'd support raising property taxes. Channel 4's Kumasi Aaron is live at City Hall with their take -- Kumasi? 3 3 In this tentative agreement the city of Jacksonville is expected to contribute 40 million dollars a year. Members have some concerns about where that money would come from, but stopped short of saying they would support a tax increase. 3 00-0524-2958-1:031:29- 1:34DENISE LEE/CITY COUNCIL 125051 Lee:We cannot mislead the public that you can run the city the size of Jacksonville on less revenue. So I don't know what the answer is. I cant say I will but i certainly can't say I won't.Piggott if it came down to sales tax property tax is there a preference.Lee: i can't answer that right nowLORI BOYER/CITY COUNCIL 125150 My answer is going to be vague. Possible. I am not going to say I would never support a tax increase.) LORI BOYER/CITY COUNCIL 12:52:32 I need to see it as part of the bigger package it needs to be a comprehensive packagePREPRO: To raise the money, property taxes would increase about a mil and half, generating about $68 million a year. Then voters would have a choice during an election whether they prefer a half-cent sales tax or a property tax increase. If sales tax wins out, then the property tax increase would go away.Bill Scheu, who headed up the task force, said the mayor needs to make a commitment now and put the sales tax referendum on the ballot.BILL SCHEU/PENSION TASK FORCE 124914 I talked to some council people that have held town hall meetings.And they say citizens get it. That they understand that this is a significant problem and they would be willing to support a tax increase. More would be in favor of a sales tax than an advolum tax increaseMany council members say they plan to wait for more details and discussion before making that decision.But Councilman Matt Schellenberg says because the current plan doesn't mention where that 40 million will come from the city is losing out.MATT SCHELLENBERG/CITY COUNCIL 12:56:26 And I'm kind of disappointed in fact quite appalled that he has not done the work that he needed to do. There is a tremendous lack of leadership and what the citizens want and what's best for the citizens it's not for the mayor and for his reelection campaign. 3 The tentative agreement will be officially introduced to the city council here on Tuesday.Before that happens the Police and Fire Pension Fund board still has to sign off on it.
