Councilman Lavarro like the rest of the JC council and silent on the homes that go into tax lien paying for affordable housing. Rent control does not receive a tax increase, it is under Consumer Price Index which has nothing to do with increase mandated cost he votes for in the budget. Affordable housing pays nothing to the board of ed and only 5% to the county. So the cost of affordable housing is transferred on to the small homeowner. This year, 4,200 people are in tax lien. They pay the taxes for people who demand services but are exempt if they live in affordable housing and rent control buildings. As long as JC accepts immigrants into the city, residents must compete for whatever housing is available. JC has between 40,000 to 50,000 more residents from the last census. The census was incomplete due to covid. When Fulop became mayor the budget was $485 million, it is now over $600 million, all of those costs have been transferred to the small homeowner.
