Most of our taxes are going to Schools that are no longer required to make sure students are proficient in math, reading, writing and comprehension. Why are we paying so much and getting nothing in return.

More and more levies and bonds. Stop voting for all these additional taxes and the tax bills won't raise by so much.

Yes and it is outrages! It went up $664. 60 over last year, for a total of $8089.85 That is $664.00 per month, just for property tax. I think Police and fire dept. need more money, but it should come out of this outrages amount not more taxes. I vote no on any increase.

We must stop voting for the tax and spend party of liberals over and over for city council and Mayor. No more parks, no more roundabouts. It's outrageous how property taxes are going up. We need more responsible people in office.

Yes, almost a 10% increase. Education and education bonds comprise 50%! I hope the public thinks it's worth it.

Wth? You have to ask this with a mandatory 3% per year largely going to parks and recs! What a joke. Where have you been, under a rock?

It's always busy, but I usually need help later in the evening. 10 pm until 2 am sucks though.

This ecosystem is as dependent on fire as it is on rain.
