Why? The local school levy passed. My real estate taxes will be increasing by 18 percent! Yes, 18 percent!!!!! They barely make a C grade with the state. Throwing good money after bad. Now I have to figure out where I am going to get that much extra money so it can be wasted. I just know they put language in there that makes this retroactive to the beginning of 2012 - yes, they had done that in the past. I need to get the heck out of this town.
If that wasn't bad enough the water/sewer bills will be increasing by at least 4 times the amount they are now with the EPA pushing to have the city do something about the combined sewers. This battle has been going on for 20 years and nobody did anything about it, much less save any money in a fund for when the city finally lost the battle to the EPA. I guess the people in charge think we are all made of money.
I did go for a walk yesterday and saw that the metro parks was regrading some of the path. It will be interesting to see how they do this.
Thanks for all your nice comments on the wedding quilt. I guess I really better enjoy my time on this trip since I won't be able to afford another vacation ever.
