Thunderbolt Tax Hike Proposed

Folks in Thunderbolt may soon be shelling out more money on property tax. Council's proposed a 1 mil increase. That means, the tax on a $100,000 house would go up $40 per year. City council has scheduled public hearings over the next few weeks to talk about the possible tax increase.

The first public hearing is on July 28 at the Thunderbolt City Hall at 6pm.

Council members say the increase is necessary because Thunderbolt's population has gone down, so there's less money coming in. This would allow the city to keep the same level of service they have now.
