It is high time for the residents and taxpayers of the Borough of Boyertown to wake-up to the fact that decisions are now being made that will increase their Boyertown Borough local tax bills for many years to come unless there is a change in attitude by Boyertown Borough Officials.
For example, on Wednesday, May 27, 2009, Building A Better Boyertown is being invited to House Committee Meeting at Boyertown Borough Hall at 7 p.m. to decide upon the future use of the former Rail Yard Property. Missing from that invitation and decision is YOU, the resident taxpaying public, who paid for the property with your tax dollars.
Apparently, your present Boyertown Borough Leaders fail to hold your input and opinion in very high regard.
Boyertown Borough lost a major portion of industrial tax base that is likewise reflected in its water and sewer revenues as well as placing an increasing burden upon residential taxpayers to pay the difference from those losses.
The Borough of Boyertown can ill afford to remove more prime property from its taxable income.
Yet, we have done exactly that by purchasing the Rail Yard Property.
What the Borough of Boyertown needs to do with that property is to give Boyertown Borough Taxpaying Residents a GIFT that keeps on giving to help ease the tax burden upon ALL residents of the Borough.
A chief complaint of Building A Better Boyertown is that its influence is largely from non-residents from outside the Borough and not paying your taxes.
By definition of Boyertown’s Main Street, technically, the Rail Yard Property isn’t even a defined area of our Main Street Program; yet, they are first on the list to define its use.
Shouldn’t Boyertown Borough’s Taxpayers be first on the list to render a decision as to how THEIR money is being spent to yield greatest returns without further loss of tax revenue forcing them to make-up the difference?
Wake-up before it is too late to save us from debt that will be a burden to pay in the form of increasing taxes!
