Support Local Businesses

We want to start up a program called “Shop Stafford” that gives you property tax rebates when you dine and shop in Stafford. Lots of communities are doing this successfully, like Brick and Marlboro. And it works like any other rewards card… when you go to a participating business in Stafford you swipe your card and a percentage of the money you spend is returned as a rebate on your property taxes – the percentage rebate is up to the business and is usually between 2% and 10%. The Shop Stafford rebate program will promote shopping at local businesses and, at the same time, give Stafford residents a rebate on the property tax bill… it’s a win-win.
