Centerville City Council has called a Tuesday meeting to receive public comment about possibly ending or changing a property tax exemption for senior citizens.
The meeting will begin at 4 p.m. at City Hall. Also on the agenda is an item regarding a north entrance to the Houston County Galleria.
Residents over 70 years old are exempted from city property taxes. City Council has talked about ending the exemption for more than a year and has spent several months deciding whether to pose the question to residents on the November ballot.
At a meeting last week, a councilman and two residents asked about limiting the exemption to properties valued at less than $100,000. Patrick Eidson, city administrator, said Tuesdays meeting is an opportunity to hear more input.
According to Eidson, the exemption has cost Centerville more than $2 million over the past decade.
