Harvey Mayor Christopher Clark announced a plan on Tuesday to not increase property taxes for the 2025 fiscal year.

"People are getting bills that are 100 times more, some of them are getting $4,000, $6,000 increases," Clark said. "If we can get everyone to hold the tax at 0%, that resident will know that his or her bill is going to be in the upcoming year and they will be able to plan for it."

The city encouraged other elected officials in the south suburbs to join the so-called "Hold The Tax" pledge.
