Lunenburg benefits from meals tax, other municipalities don't
Some of the struggling cities and towns across the Bay State have brought in nearly half a billion dollars since July 2009 by levying an additional tax on meals and hotel rooms, but most north central Massachusetts municipalities are saying they'll pass.

It's to bad you had your insurance go up well, mine did also but, I could not ask the tax payer to help me though. I retired last year now I'm looking for part time work because property taxes aer going up and we are struggling already.
I do not go out to eat in Lunenburg any longer I just can't afford the 7% increase.
When I see the tree trimmers hiding a truck and the men sitting in it for hours doing nothing I think that may be a wast of tax dollars, should some one from the town be checking on them?
When you open the recycling of yard waste should they be checking what town they come from? That should be a volunteer doing the same job. Give it to me I will sit if you lighten my property taxes, I put my name in to the town to volunteer but, never heard from anyone.
