Alliance Letter to Hartford Mayor Segarra

May 07, 2014
MetroHartford Alliance


Do not increase the mill rate in the City of Hartford’s FY ’15 budget. That was the message in a letter from the MetroHartford Alliance to Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra. The 2.3 mill rate increase hurts economic development and continues the city’s dependence on publicly subsidized projects for growth. The City Council has until May 21st to propose any changes to the recommended budget, and it must be adopted by May 31st. The Alliance will continue to vehemently oppose this increase in hopes of eliminating it from the budget.
