      Union Gap raises property tax for first time in years

      UNION GAP, Wash. -- Property taxes will go up for the first time in years.

      City council didn't make a decision at Monday night's council meeting,
      so they had to hold a special session Thursday.

      Council voted in favor of a one percent property tax increase.

      One man says he hopes the added money is put to good use.

      "I don't mind a one percent tax increase. My point is, what is it for," Paul Sulky said.

      We're told this is the first property tax increase since 2008. Council passed the increase with a 5-3 vote.
