City considers changes for partial tax exemption for seniors

NORWICH A proposed local law to exempt a percentage of property taxes for seniors living in the City of Norwich is being considered by members of the city council and, pending a public hearing, is expected to pass.



Last month, city official received a proposal to amend a currently existing city ordinance that allows for partial exemption of certain real property owned by residents who are 65 years of age and older.

A public hearing for the amendment is scheduled for 7 p.m., Nov. 19 at One City Plaza.
