The City of Milton will have a series of town hall meetings starting Thursday to provide information on a proposed fire levy lid lift.

The three meetings will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 14 and July 20 at the Milton Fire Department Training Room, 1000 Laurel St.

Milton voters will decide Aug. 17 whether to raise their property taxes for improved fire and medical protection, including advanced life support provided by paramedics. Services would be provided through a contract with East Pierce Fire & Rescue.

The measure would raise city property taxes by $1.21 per $1,000 of assessed valuation for five years, starting in 2011. If approved, the owner of a $275,000 home in Milton would pay about $333 more a year in city property taxes.

For more information about the town hall meetings, contact Milton City Administrator Subir Mukerjee at 253-517-2706 or smukerjee@cityofmilton.net.
