City of Boise Proposed Budget

We just received this post from Boise’s Energize program. Of course, residential property values have skyrocketed these past few years but the real drivers of your property tax bill are the spending/budgets of our taxing districts.

Your CTNA urges you to open or download the City of Boise’s “proposed” budget at – cityofboise.org/budget. It is both detailed and informative!
