Property tax hike in Neptune sparks outrage among the community
A property tax hike in Neptune has sparked outrage among the community. Now, local government officials are getting involved to provide aid to those residents whose taxes doubled and tripled.
Neptune Township Mayor Thomas Catley says the raise in taxes came after a state ordered revaluation. He also says a new bill package is aimed at asking for aid to those residents who have been hit the hardest with the jump. Assemblyman Sean Kean says government officials will introduce the bill in Trenton. Senator Joe Palaia is also pushing to get this bill passed.
Catley says he will join residents in going down to Trenton to rally support for the bill. Local government officials plan to meet with residents at an annual breakfast Saturday to discuss other ideas to improve their new financial situations.
