Blount County Tax Revolt

In The City (My The City) we’re having the same problem other cities are having. Our politicos like to spend our money on their pet projects and other things. But with projected increases in spending, they want to vote to raise taxes. Some locals are starting to notice:

Rather than dealing with our County’s Spending Problem, our Blount County Commissioners voted to increase your property taxes another $3.6 Million dollars.

Update: Background here.

    The Coffee county commision is wanting a wheel tax because they can’t keep up with their spending with current tax income. @$$holes.

    This is why here in WI the state aid cuts had to be accompanied by property tax increase limits. Maybe we can finally stop bailing water and plug the leak.

    Sitting through one of these council meetings is excruciating, but revealing. While waiting during one of our local meetings, I looked at the agenda: $5,000 for X, $8,500 for Y, and on and on with amounts allocated to all manner of projects and organizations lining up to get the cash allocated to each commissioner to use in that commissioner’s district as the commissioner chose.
    I saw my money siphoned away.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
