2008_09_bloombsmi.jpgMayor Bloomberg wants city residents--and his agency commissioners--to know they need to get on board with some tax hikes and slashing budgets! The Mayor reiterated that property taxes will go up yesterday, "We will raise property taxes back to the level they were a year and a half ago next June. In other words, the 7 percent reduction will just be put back in." As for any city commissioners who might feel aggrieved about cutting their budgets, Bloomberg--who also praised them for being "as good a group as anyone's put together"--said they need to "suck it up and get back to work, because that's the job and they’re going to have to do it.” So there!
