Does anyone know why part of our property taxes in the city go toward "WorkComp/CitySvcs"? The tax rate for that category is 0.623920 per thousand; but what is that paying for exactly? I read something about worker's comp insurance premiums, but I don't know why or who is receiving these payments??

I think they split this out to show the taxpayers that some (actually, many) costs are out of the control of locally elected officials. If that's the purpose, I would suggest that they break out pension & health care as well, but that would probably be opposed by the employee's unions.

Are we paying premiums for city employees? I thought the state handled all worker's comp stuff.
