Sweeney, Weinberg plan town halls on property tax relief

    N.J. Senate President Stephen Sweeney and Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg have planned town hall meetings around the state to talk property tax relief.

    The first meeting is set for Wednesday at the Mercer County Library – Lawrence Branch.

    State Democrats have a plan to reduce the property tax burden by 10 percent for residents who make less than $250,000 a year, according to the Gloucester County Times. Renters stand to receive $200 a year once the plan is fully implemented.

     

    More public meetings will be scheduled.
