City of Lancaster residents may face a property tax increase for the first time in four years.
The proposed hike is part of the drafted 2012-13 budget city of Lancaster officials are now considering.
The recommendation calls for the city’s millage rate to go from 143.5 to 149.7 mills. That results in about a $24 tax increase on a $100,000 owner-occupied home, said City of Lancaster Finance Director James Absher.
The last time the city raised taxes was for the 2008-09 fiscal year, when the rate went from 140 to 143.5 mills.
