Today another entry shows they have their eyes on our situation.
We’ve been telling you about the move in neighboring Augusta County, Virginia to raise property taxes after reassessments there ringing so familiar to those we saw in Nelson County saw last year. The fight continues in Augusta with only one BOS member thus far standing with the people over the outrage of the increases.Check out the entire blog entry here. I like the way they ended:
Apparently when the masses speak up, it does have an impact. SWAC Girl reports in her blog that in Bath County last year, the increases were deemed so ridiculous that the appraisal firm was eventually fired and the tax rate rolled back to it’s original rate before appraisal.
Note to elected officials, cut government, cut the waste, get your house in order before you come into ours.Amen. And our thanks to our friends at Nelson County Life for their interest.
