I would like to let everyone know what is in the Fire Levy and the School Bond Levy proposed for vote on March 23, 2013.
The Fire Levy is the exact levy that was proposed last year. The rates are 2.34 cents for every \$1000.00 value of Class I property, 4.68 cents per \$1000.00 value of Class II property, 9.36 cents for every \$1000.00 value of Class III property and 9.36 cents for every \$1000.00 values of Class IV property. Assume you own your home and it is valued at \$75,000.00 which includes all your household goods you will have to pay a fee of \$35.10 on your home and household goods, then assume you just purchased a new vehicle for \$36,000 you will have to pay an additional \$33.69 for this. Adding these together you will be paying \$68.79 additional in taxes just for the fire levy fees. How many homes are only worth \$75,000 including everything in your home and out buildings? If yours are worth more then your tax would be greater.
Now let look at the School Levy. The first page says this levy is not an increase in taxes, but if you go to the second page it says "additional money derived from and increase in levy funds", then on to the last paragraph is says " The proposed additional rate of levy on each class of property per \$100.00 of valuation of such property shall be as follows: Class I 22.95 cents, Class II 45.90, Class III 91.80, and Class IV 91.80"
Let's assume then we own the same property as in the fire levy then we will have a tax rate on our homes of \$258.82, on our vehicle \$330.48. This would give us a new tax of \$589.30 just of the School levy. If we add these together we will be hit with a new tax on our property of \$658.09, and that is only if your property is worth what I have listed.
Why do you think Williamson is keeping this election hide and not letting our the information contained in these new levies? They don't want us to know what is being voted on in hopes no one will get out and vote. If you don't want higher taxes then get out and vote. I for one will be voting NO on both !!!
I am sorry but I listed the fire levy tax as on every \$1000.00 of value but that should have read as on every \$100.00 of value.

Everyone needs to do their own research into what these levies contain and determine if they support them or not. Let's not let the County Commission get away with keeping this election secret, so no one will know to get out and vote. If these are going to really help us then why try to keep this election such a secret?

When your taxes double then you won't feel the same. If you don't want your taxes to double then you had better get out and vote
