For slapping us with a tax increase in a recession with rising unemployment, the entire bunch on the county board should get the shoe-leather express.
With all the development, high appraisals and huge influx of people moving and living here, the county should be flush with cash.
They have done as good of a job as anyone...if you think you can do better I suggest you run for office.
too much of the development has been "starter" homes--not that there's anything wrong with them--that don't pay enough in property taxes to fund the cost of educating the kids that live there. nor do their families pay enough in sales taxes--not that I'm saying anyone should pay more. it's just a fact that residential development costs government more than it pays. the huge influx of people does not produce a net gain for the county coffers. unfortunate, not widely understood, but true.
