Borough should fix problem, not look to taxpayers for solution

Posted: Tuesday, April 11, 2006

Just a quick review. During my wage earning years I paid taxes on the monies earned. With some of what was left, I purchased some lumber and other materials to construct a home, and paid taxes on the cost of materials. The light at the end of the tunnel was that in the retirement years, my tax burden would be less at age 65. Now Mr. Williams wants to introduce a measure (to cap the senior property tax exemption. The proposed cap was rejected at the April 4 borough assembly meeting) that will mean if I can’t pony up that which I had not planned on, the government can take possession of my home. This is not what I wore Army green for.

Business as usual in Borough Headquarters, don’t fix what is wrong, just soak the folks for more.
