Rock Island Asks for Feedback about Proposed, Downtown Special Service Area
The City of Rock Island wants to know what residents, businesses, and other stakeholders think of a proposal to establish a downtown Special Service Area.
Last month, the Downtown Steering Committee and a group of property owners asked the city council to approve the area between 1st and 7th Avenues, and 13th and 28th Streets.
Property owners within the area would pay an extra property tax of 1.15%. For example, the owner of Ms. Brimani's Hair and Beauty Supply on 2nd avenue would pay an additional $426 per year.
Comments will be accepted through October 24th, when Rock Island will hold a public hearing about the proposed, downtown Special Service Area.
