SYRACUSE, Utah (AP) -- Property taxes in Syracuse could be going up -- way up.

City officials are seeking a 57 percent property tax increase.

They say there are a lot of different needs for more money. One is to increase the pay of city employees. Councilman Phil Orton says Syracuse pays workers less in comparison to other communities.

Orton says the city in Davis County also needs more police officers and firefighters.

Mayor Fred Panucci says that although the increase sounds steep, Syracuse will still have low taxes.

A public hearing on the tax increase is scheduled for August 14.
