St. Joseph County residents will be paying property taxes to fund bridge repairs
If you live in St. Joseph County, listen up: you will be paying more on your property taxes.
That extra money will be going to pay for major bridge repairs and projects.
Commissioners approved the increase yesterday, and it will go into effect next year, according to our partners at the South Bend Tribune.
The proposed increase would generally only impact homes outside South Bend and Mishawaka since they're not at the state property tax cap.
The expected hit would range from roughly $5 to $14 on the average home.
The county council will also consider another a nearly identical tax hike next week for the capital fund on things like buildings and equipment.
