STATEMENT FROM MAYOR TOM HENRY ON THE BUSINESS PERSONAL PROPERTY TAX
September 27, 2016 - Now more than ever, it’s important for all of us to work together to continue to make Fort Wayne a great place to live, work, and play. We must remain committed to ensuring essential services continue to be provided to residents and children and protect homeowners from having to pay higher property taxes.
Now is not the time to change course and put our future at risk. That’s why I’m encouraged by City Council’s action tonight to defeat the proposal that would have eliminated the business personal property tax on new business equipment. I applaud Councilmen Barranda, Crawford, Didier, Hines and Paddock for voting against the proposal.
