North Side Residents Asked to Share Stories About Property Taxes

Legislative members of the State House of Representatives Taxes Committee are holding a hearing in North Minneapolis to discuss rising property taxes. Members of the House Property Tax Relief & Local Sales Tax Committee will be at North Minneapolis High School Auditorium on Wednesday March 5th at 6:30 p.m.

Rep. Augustine "Willie" Dominguez, DFL-Minneapolis, represents the district and says that it is important for local residents to attend the meeting. "We all know that property taxes are rising," Dominguez said. "We see the numbers and statistics in the papers everyday. But what we don't see is the personal side. We loose sight of the families and their struggles."

This is the seventh in a series of meetings held across the state to discuss the reasons behind the rapid rise in property taxes over the past six years. Similar meetings were held in Albert Lea, Rochester, Eagan, Little Falls, St. Cloud and Champlin in early February.

Residents who are not able to attend the meeting can tell their stories and voice their concerns by calling Minnesota's Property Tax Comment line at 1-800-551-5520 or 651-297-8391. They can also log onto Minnesota's Property Tax Comment page at
