Re: Taxpayers talk to commissioners about raised taxes

Why is it anytime the county is having a money shortfall, they talk about increasing property taxes? The public is suffering a recession, but that hasn't stopped the appraisers from raising property values which raises taxes. Now they want to raise the property tax rate? How are small businesses and the property owners that have the building the businesses on going to manage. Taxing is not the solution. The County could ask the public what ideas they have to cut costs and balance the budget.
