Also not everyone has multiple properties. Some only have one and have an ag exemption which would make them pay less like say 10 dollars.

We still donate to them and Yeah, its a lot but we have a lot of property the personal property it is on ag. I'll tell what really upsets me is we pay isd taxes which are the highest taxes and our last child goes to private school, but that's an old and long running issue.

The ESD voted to accept a budget which is based on a tax rate of .086. They will vote to accept the rate in their next meeting. They only proposed the rate tonight which was a big step.

I was disappointed in the number of taxpayers who did not show up for this important meeting. 10 taxpayers showed up. Pretty sad people but very typical of voters. For those who did not show up don't complain later on. People say they support the VFD but saying it and showing are two very different things.

Don,t know why your disappointed. the rate is very near what you wanted. As far as more tax payers showing up. Thats typical of MOST boards or commission meetings.But lets say as a hypothetical that you had more show up and those extra taxpayers told the Board they wanted the rate to be say .01 or .03 and they were a majority of those who showed up,would they get an earful of how they are,nt supporting the VFD?..Also more then likely the board would not have done what the majority asked.But that,s just a hypothetical since only 10 showed up.
If the board does a final vote to make the rate .086 then the folks who wanted more should be happy with what they get and don,t throw a fit..

Way to go camorider. I looked at some of caretakers other posts, boy don't waste your time with him/her anymore. It was a good meeting. Tough for the ESD trying to serve the VFD and taxpayers but I think it was reasonable. As fars a tax payers who are flakes, its typical of people complaining and never showing support. People basically suck when its time to do something right or to back up their mouth. Most people are full of %@#*&.

The only one with issues seems to be yourself. And I can guarantee I could careless if you respond to anything I post.

What makes a flaky tax payer?. is that one who thinks taxes are too high or too low?. Now you don,t have to reply since it would waste your time.
