The only reason people want to change is because they are not happy with what they are getting. I know I wouldn't be happy if I was paying $45,000 per year for 18 acres of trees and grass!

Governments, especially townships, need to realize that if you aren't going to help and support your residents there is always another government close that would be more than happy to help them in exchange for a lower tax rate. That is exactly what is happening in Hamilton Township. What is stopping the trustees from rezoning her property to a residential area? I guess the answer would be about $45,000?

Loveland, Maineville and South Lebanon are quickly grabbing pieces of property to grow their populations and tax base. But it isn't like these municipalies are forcing people to join. They are doing it of their own free will because the municipality has something better to offer...more often than not it is tax relief.

Government officials...WAKE UP!!! You work for us, and we are not happy!!!

The areas in warren county that are seeking (grabbing)these parcels of land ,do want to increase their taxable land mass, but they are NOT Growing their population as you say. Warren County doesn't have many JOBs to offer so the taxes paid to these places such as Loveland,Maineville and South Lebanon, come by way of "Land usage Tax",they get to charge you for fire-police-911 -life squad runs ETC. on top of the ungodly taxes they pile on.We have let our politicians get away with far too much for way too long. I Think we need a TEA PARTY ,it is time to show our elected officials that we have had it,we are being robbed blind by their Tax Everything Attitude, when will it stop ? before your down to the last penny you own ,or the last blood left to drip away. OUR POLITICIANS NEED to be made accountable,we need to BRIDLE then NOW ! Stop OUR Losses NOW We have Hemorrhaged Enough
