I don't know if you have the same problem I do, but my taxes continue to rise during a time when property values are not. How can the assessors justify tax increases when values have decreased by at least 10%? It is time to reduce our city budgets and fat from our ledgers. If we continue on this path, it will make it impossible for retirees to continue to hold onto their homes. For all intensive purposes we are forcing our elderly to exodus our state because they can't afford the cost of living. We must speak up and do it now.
