The Yavapai College District Governing Board approved an increase in the primary property tax levy for Yavapai County residents in the 2023-2024 budget. YC Vice President of Finance and Administration Clint Ewell explained that the college had been putting off an increase during the pandemic. The last time the tax levy was raised was in 2019. The approved increase in Yavapai County will pay an additional estimate of $7 in property taxes per $100,000 of home value. The 5% increase will help the college keep up with inflation.
Are these College Governing Board positions filled by selection or voted in by the public? Of course they are going to approve themselves a raise at taxpayers’ expense. Did they cut anything from their budgets or just go for the easy route and tax us even more. We all adjust to inflation, shouldn’t you?
