The Labrosse Team has the Best Record on Taxes in Bergen County
& ONE OF THE BEST IN THE ENTIRE STATE!

Mayor John Labrosse and the City Council are working to keep  Hackensack affordable for homeowners and renters by lowering City taxes in each of the last three years, cutting nearly $1.5 Million from the municipal tax levy since 2018. Check out the numbers for yourself:

Cutting the municipal tax levy year after year like this is incredibly rare. So rare, that only 1% of New Jersey’s 565 municipalities did it from 2018-2020 — and Hackensack is one of them!

While Other Towns are Raising Taxes, The Labrosse Team is Cutting Them
Every Year!

Only two other towns in Bergen County reduced their municipal tax levy, and none of the larger municipalities that are more comparable to Hackensack did it. In fact, they all raised taxes:

THE LABROSSE TEAM LOWER TAXES PLAN:
  • Attracting nearly $10 million in new annual tax revenue through redevelopment projects and an innovative host community agreement with Hackensack University Medical Center

  • Making city government more efficient by cutting unnecessary spending, strict budget controls and professional management.

  • Protecting current residential taxpayers by reassessing all property values on a rolling five year basis
