Let's face it,no one wants the cost of anything to increase,however there are some things that must. No one gets something for nothing.
My husband did the math and our taxes will raise about $156.00 per year to keep our streets safe and city emergencies taken care of. Most importantly it keeps our police and firefighters employed. That is well worth it to me.

I am paying less than half of the taxes I did when I first bought the place eight years ago. I am glad to pay for services rendered. The money has to come from somewhere.
