Local elected officials and property tax bills: compare and contrast holdings

The property tax bills for local elected officials provide some interesting comparisons.

Jupiter Island Town Commissioner Charles Falcone faces a property tax bill totaling $137,010.40 for 2011, the highest of any elected official in the county. Falcone’s bill includes $37,995.83 in town property taxes as a result of tax rates of $5.08 per $1,000 of assessed value that he voted to approve earlier this summer, Martin County records show.

The overall property tax bills for 2011 declined for 19 of the 31 sitting county and municipal elected officials who have a say on the property tax rates, compared to 2010, county records show. That includes all five county commissioners, four of five school board members, all five Stuart city commissioners and three of four Sewall’s Point town commissioners.
