This Tuesday, your county commissioners will be voting to raise property taxes, but you can make your voice heard and ask them to change their conservation funding plans. Collier County already gets 70% of its revenue from property taxes despite the state average being 50%, so alternate funding mechanisms should be utilized.

What is the exact increase?
At .25 mil, it would be a $20 million dollar a year property tax increase.
What would it be used for?
To bring back the Conservation Collier land-buying program. This program would give the county millions more in revenue, at the taxpayers’ expense, to buy land for environmental preservation – despite the fact that we are already at 78% of our land in preservation.
Are there other options? Yes, the county has a $32 million conservation fund in reserve – which is enough to manage the currently preserved land in perpetuity.
Do we really pay that much?
Yes, Collier County gets 70% of its revenue from real estate taxes when the state average is 50%.
