- Baltimore will consider offering a property tax break to local police and firefighters.
The Baltimore Sun reported Monday that officials believe the relief would entice more emergency responders to live in the city. It would also help the city financially while fostering more trust between safety officials and the public.
The tax break would be $2,500 for a public safety employee who owns a home in the city. It would include sheriff’s deputies as well as police and firefighters.
Not much good coming out of Baltimore lately – except this maybe:
It might – MIGHT – expand the pool of applicants up from the miserable showings of the past ten or fifteen years. It would have to be doubled though.
