Lot's of times they say they haven't raised taxes while raising fees instead.  It's really just semantics.  Of course, fees are usually regressive so it burdens the poor the most when fees are raised over, say, property taxes. 

There are many fees that have been kept artificially low by City Council, and are not presently covering the cost of providing the service (despite being required by Ordinance in most cases). Garbage and mobility fees are the most egregious examples.

Roughly two-thirds of the City's revenue comes from either property taxes and revenue from JEA (which doesn't pay property taxes... effectively the tradeoff between a municipally-owned utility versus franchise fees and property taxes paid by a privately-run utility provider).

Much of what bl8jaxnative posts is off-the-cuff rants. Heavy drinking while using the internet is an odd combination.

I stated half the city's revenue comes from property taxes.  I was proven correct.     And your reaction is to restate the same way and then jump into a childish personal attack?   

1/2 the cities revenues come from property taxes.
