Tiffany Rankins, the secretary for the Lincoln Park neighborhood association, speaks at a 9/12/17 Chattanooga City Council meeting.

Tuesday evening, Chattanooga City Council members voted a second and final time to approve the Fiscal Year 2018 budget for the city

During the first vote, all members except District 1's Chip Henderson had voted to approve it.

It was the same situation with the second vote. Henderson, on behalf of his constituents, opposed the property tax hike many Chattanooga homeowners now face.

Tiffany Rankins also expressed concern about rising property taxes. Rankins is the secretary for the Lincoln Park Neighborhood Association, and she also spoke out about why she says Lincoln Park deserves historic preservation status, and why she opposes plans for a road to be constructed through the community.
