City Council Passes Tax Freeze

The Longview City Council tonight passed a measure freezing property taxes for residential home owners who are disabled or elderly, that being 65 or older. Secondly, it passed the ordinance calling for a special election May 15th. On that date, residents will vote on a bond issue concerning updated youth sports buildings, possibly totaling $12.75- million. Finally, the last issue to come up tonight, failed to be voted on, by lack of a motion. That means Longview will not participate in a statewide program that would have prevented the city from ever reducing benefits to firefighters
