Wiatr wants to cap tax rate

Sandra ClarkKnox Notes

Erik Wiatr wants to cap the city of Knoxville’s property tax rate at $2.46 (2.4638/$100 of assessed value), the current rate. He will first ask Knoxville City Council to adopt the cap (they won’t) and then he will go the petition route, getting the Knox County Election Commission to approve ballot language. Wiatr moved here from someplace else. He currently works as a real estate agent, and he managed the successful campaign of Kyle Ward for Knox County Commission District 4.
