City Council President has proposed a tax hike for vacant properties: after a year of vacancy, tax rates would increase by 10%, and would continue to increase for each year of vacancy up to 18%. Although making this new tax hike work would require actually collecting taxes from absentee landowners, it might provide an incentive to develop or sell properties that would otherwise sit empty.
