QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Quincy City Councilor said he has put forward a proposal to give veterans in the city a break on their taxes.
Councilor-At-Large Noel DiBona said he intentionally made the proposal vague to reach as many veterans as possible. Veterans receiving the credit would get up to $1500, and would need to work at least part-time for the city or volunteer.
"This will be a great opportunity for our veterans to work with adolescents, other senior citizens... some folks, they just kind of keep to themselves, and this will be an opportunity to bring them together," DiBona said.
The councilor said he would use the city's developer's fund, which pools money paid to the city by real estate developers, to pay for the credit.
DiBona has chaired the Veterans Services Committee since 2016.
