A tax watchdog group in Bethel is hosting a property tax forum next week. The Bethel Action Committee has invited outgoing Superintendent of Schools Dr Kevin Smith, Board of Finance Chairman William Kingston, the town's comptroller, the Director of Education Fiscal Services and Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton.
The question up for discussion is "Why must property taxes always go up?".
BAC founder Billy Michael says each panelist will give their views on how municipal and school spending can impact annual property tax increases. Residents attending the forum will be able to ask questions of the panelists.
The event is Tuesday at 7pm in the general purpose room of the Bethel Municipal Center.
