[ARCHIVED] Mil Rate set for 2013-2014 Fiscal Year

May 24, 2013

Suzanne Burr Monaco
Trumbull Town Clerk
Trumbull Town Hall
5866 Main Street
Trumbull, CT 06611

Dear Mrs. Monaco,

In accordance with Chapter IV, Section 5 of the Trumbull Town Charter, I submit to you the tax rate for the 2013-2014 fiscal year.

The Board of Finance failed to set a tax rate last evening at their meeting. In light of their inability to set the tax rate, this duty has now fallen to me as First Selectman.

Please be advised that in accordance with the Town Charter and a legal opinion from out Town Attorney, I am setting a mil rate of 31.286, an increase of 1.87%, below the current rate of inflation. In light of the fact that the average Trumbull homeowner saw a property tax reduction of 3.5%, I am confident that this tax rate maintains and improves upon Town services while keeping Trumbull's cost of living affordable for our residents.

Very Truly Yours,

Timothy M. Herbst
First Selectman
