Total tax arrears are considered a barometer of property taxpayers’ ability to pay, city treasurer Shelley Chemnitz said.
Wow – well Ms. Chemnitz pretty much says it all. I can’t imagine that people not being able to pay taxes would have anything to do with taxes being too high, or not enough priority being given to trying to improve the economic situation in this fair city of ours and get people back to work, but then, what do I know?
We need a readjustment in priorities at city council. This report is useful to a degree, but it came about because of a misguided attack on PDVC. More time working to build a better city, less time re-fighting battles that have already been lost.
