If you write the expression "just sayin" to sum up your views, a statement and or conversation you might be a total douche bag.

The trouble is - the ones that need to clean up their yards & porches probably won't.

Ever think of offering your physical abilities and help them clean up thier yards and porches? As rude as people are, not many turn down FREE labor. dont get me wrong, this may not be the best course of action for everyone, but for those who believe srongly in clean yards and porches, free labor is a cheap way to encourage others to do their part.

I know several people who are homeowners in Indy who share that point of view! Many older people on fixed incomes are a big part. You might be surprised how many church and community organizations have offered to help others with their properties only to be told by them that they were afraid that an improvements would raise their taxes even higher! If you're going to get outraged try that on for size! Imagine working all your life to own your home just to have it taken away because you can't afford the taxes! BAH...if they want an old motor hanging from their tree more power to them!

Outside of my house looks like crap, but the inside is like the taj mahal. I'm not touching the outside of my house and won't let anyone else either. My neighbors are catching on too. Haha. Screw these taxes. As soon as property moves in Indy I'm movin to another state. Nothing here to make me stay after that. Use to love it here. Now I wake up every morning with a stomach ache wondering why I put up with it around here.

I've noticed most houses in Independence are in bad need of a paint job, is the reason for this higher taxes?

Not only are the property taxes way too high but apparently they are not done fairly. This year, our property valuation went up $8000 but our neighbor, who added a large room and garage, got his lowered $9,000. We did nothing to our property.

Thank your county commissioners for it...they hired the new appraiser pay her more than dept heads that have been with the county for many, many years. She has no clue how to run the office.

I am a single mother, I am currently on unemployment due to lack of work here, I am trying to get out of this town with everything I have. It is so expensive to live here I cannot even afford lawn care. OR a lawn mower for that matter! Instead of complaining about neighbors yards or porches offer a hand, or a truck, or even a mower! Most people do not like the mess anymore than you do. I have been cutting my large weeds with a pair of clippers one at a time to try to take care of it and my neighbors just sit on their porch and laugh. Yes it is funny I agree, but they are probably the ones posting on here too. Move the power from your mouths to your hands a do a good deed instead maybe you will not be so bitter :)

Why don't you get to know your neighbor, tell them what is going on and they might help you. Most neighbors do not realize what problems people are having. If the neighbors are laughing, then they are awful people. Some of the single parents are having a really bad time making it in this economy.
