Yes, we managed to put our citizens in a tax guillotine. If you don't pass the SPLOST, you are going to be faced with massive property tax and water/sewage bill increases. Of course, if you vote to continue the SPLOST, you are going to see large property tax and water bill increases, just a wee bit less.

Aren't you glad, now that you elected such visionaries, such ideators.......council members who are constantly thinking of innovative ways to spend the hard earned money of the citizens of St. Marys.

I will be running for mayor in the very near future. You can really thank me with your vote. I have some very intriguing ideas on how we can spend even more of your money.

You can continue to wring your hands over past actions but that won't change the future. Either this SPLOST passes or our water/sewer rates skyrocket again and our millage rate increases. I'm voting YES to SPLOST VII.

To the people outside the city limits of St.Marys we are not iin that kind of a bind. So why would we want to raise our taxes just for them to pay off their mistakes of planning on the sub-school to came spent all that money and it never showed up.

I do not want to pay more in taxes just because of 1 city.
This year I will buy 3 new trucks for my company and if Ihave to pay 1% extra because of splost I will buy in brunswick and save 1200.00 dollars.
Let them dig themselves out of that mess.

I guess I'm voting for it also. But I think we can still expect an increase in millage and water rates.

WTF, you are already paying the 1 cent tax. Its just a continuation of SPLOSTVI, as I understand it.

If I am wrong, someone will correct me.

You're right, Redneck. WTF, educate yourself. It's just a continuation of SPLOST VI. If someone offered to pay 12.1% of your mortgage you'd jump at it so why wouldn't you vote to have visitors to Camden County pay 12.1% of the revenue generated by SPLOST VII?
It's a no-brainer. I'm supporting VII. Good website by the way.

I usually agree with you but I have to ask if you are getting F'd is it ok to let them continue. We need to focus on $45 Mil.

The only thing I hate more than the cowards tax (Splost)is being blackmailed by the city council over the 43 million speculation debt.

Facts is right. You can whine about what went before and vote NO on SPLOST VII or you can vote YES for a small but powerful tax that's been around for over 30 years. Yeah, past councils have made dumb choices but SPLOST money pays for Kingsland, Woodbine, County, St. Marys infrastructure and more.
Just do us a favor. If you vote No, don't come whining to Topix about that pothole in your street, lack of essential services etc.

You are right about the 45 mil debt. If we can get non St Marys people to pay a tax that can be used to help pay the 45 million down, I would call that a winner. I know you say thats just another tax, well, you gonna pay that 46 million one way or the other. With or without the SPLOST. Your choice.

Bottom line: either SPLOST VII passes and payments are shared throughout the county and by "visitors" (12-15%) or it doesn't and we all empty our wallets to pay for infrastructure repairs and maintenance, debts and everything else. It's not like SPLOST is anything new, for God's sake. We've had it for about 30 years but we need it now more than ever before. Drop the stupid anti-council garbage: you can't un-ring that bell.
Two choices. Vote SPLOST VII in or prepare to have your water/sewer rates and millage rate go through the roof.

This thing doesn't have a chance of passing. Do you really think that Camden voters are going to pass this thing when people are struggling to get by? Raising everyone's property taxes and water bill is another brilliant idea. The only businesses with doors open will be government buildings. I am starting to think that is what they want...

They've been working towards this destruction since 2000. The community is just beginning to feel the effects of their decisions. Get this! No NEW industry is slated for Camden County . The tax digest is about 70% residential. Recipe for a very depressed community. Add on to that the fact that Kings Bay just informed their civilian employees they have to take the next 22 Fridays off without pay.

All bright minded people either left Camden before or shortly after Steve Berry! The psunami is coming, it's labeled as extreme poverty folks!

While it is true that the SPLOST tax is nothing new to Camden, unfortunately, the Spencers are.

When Julian gets on your bad side, look out. Just ask Jason, Jeremy, Alex, Barbara, Gary, Greg, Bill, Sidney, Stan, Bob, or Jerry. There are many others, but it's time to fix breakfast.
