@Jasper J: The city already has a HUGE property tax relief program for senior citizens earning less than $100,000/year. They pay half the property tax that anyone else would pay on the same property. You want to cut their taxes even more?

I can see the objection about people being forced out of their homes. So there's a reasonable case for having a property tax deferral program -- let seniors defer property tax payments, so they pay less or nothing now, and then pay that back (with interest) when they die or sell the house. But more tax breaks for seniors would be ridiculous.
