Rising property tax bills and an expensive proposal for the new Main Library took center stage at Boise City Council’s budget public hearing Tuesday night.

Of the three residents who stood before council, all took issue with the proposed $752.8 million budget for several reasons, including the city’s decision to increase property tax collections 3 percent to the maximum allowed by state code as well as the decision to spend $69 million for a new Main Library in downtown Boise.
