Reader: “Government’s a joke”
To the Editor:
Can someone explain how a piece of property can decrease in value by 13 percent and property taxes go up by 1.4 percent and this is not a tax increase?
For it not to be an increase the taxes should fall to about $189.00 not increase from $218 to $221.
Only government can steal more of your money and tell you their stealing less.
I'm glad to see we have an extra $6,000 laying around to buy shovels for the Baxter project. They must be in bad financial shape. I would have thought for a project of that size they would use heavy equipment.
Come on people wake up. Tell government we are not that dumb.
Stop wasting our money.
Government's a joke.
