Contact the Mayor and City Council and tell them not to balance the City budget on the backs of renters! Here is what you can do:
1. Call or email the City Manager, Mayor and Council. Please consider sharing your personal story of why you rent and any economic hardships or challenges you have faced (i.e. senior on a fixed income, illness, layoff, student, Veteran). Let them know how a rent tax will affect your family’s personal budget.

Mayor Robert Walkup

Vice-Mayor Richard Fimbres, Ward 5

2. Attend a City Council meeting and speak during the call to the public. The Council meetings are held every Tuesday at 5:30 pm. You will need to put in a speaker card, which is available at the meeting. If you need help, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
