Property tax disputed

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- A property tax hike is causing quite the stir in Dubuque.

A proposal presented to the Dubuque City Council in early December includes a 2.4 percent increase for the average homeowner.  That would be an increase of about 27 dollars per person.

Commercial and industrial property taxes could increase around 1.7 percent.

The proposal came about because of a state mandate that requires more money be put toward the Municipal Fire and Police Retirement system.
