Cherryville, NC

They came here months ago knocking on our door and very polite. I am afraid that our real estate taxes will go up and know there isn't anything anyone can do about it. They will send an enclosure with our property tax bill showing what all our money is being spent on. If you live inside our city limits, you get the city police protection "we don't pay by the month for them", we do pay by the month for our electricity, for our trash, for refuse even if you don't have any for them to pick up, we pay water and then pay sewer which is equal to the water we use. If you are a business or run a business they want money for you running a business, if you need an ambulance you pay for that out of pocket too and I assume fire department is the same. If the county police are needed, they travel to this far western town, like the ambulance. I am not sure about the city fire department and I don't think they can work for nothing; don't expect them to either. I don't expect something for nothing, but those that live in Cherryville and work outside do not get compensated for their gas, wear and tear on their vehicles, not to mention the headaches from being bound in traffic jams and to top that off they drive home to find a combined county and city property tax bill in their mail box. There are no businesses here to make an affordable income and never will be because we are so far away from the interstate and only two lane roads that lead to the nearest interstate. Why should we have to pay the same tax as those cities that flourish in our COUNTY?
