Kingston’s city officials have decided to hold off on a proposed 17 cent property tax increase. The resolution went before the city council Tuesday for a second reading but the voting was passed-on after an amendment to the original motion to pass it was placed on the floor for a vote. Councilman Tony Brown asked for the amendment which asked the city to operate on a continuing budget until the council could call together a work session to address what he called “changes” in the budget from the first reading which was passed at the last meeting. The council voted to support the recommendation, which placed the proposed tax increase on hold. The date of that work session has yet to be finalized.
