We’ve proposed that slumlords should be taxed at a higher property tax rate than law-abiding property owners, to offset the costs to the city associated with vacant property. This idea has already been implemented in DC, and we want the idea to be implemented in Baltimore.  Dan Rodricks will be discussing this issue with a panel, and we’d like our readers to tune in.

You can read more about the idea here and here, and you can also sign up to support this idea on a Facebook page created by one of our contributors.

The WYPR segment on the property tax rate increase will be from 1 to 2 PM November 24.
