KGB Property Taxes
By Dan McQueen

Once again I get to the mailbox, sort through my mail and what do I find? A KGB Property Tax notice telling me that once again after doing nothing to my property the value of my house has gone up another $10,000.00.

Aren't the inflated house values a bit much? The only thing that I find that hasn't changed is Wages. Otherwise everything else that people need to survive have gone way up. Food! Fuel! Dry goods! Electricity!

Why can't the KGB do as the rest of us and just tighten their belts?

Seems like we need to cut way back on KGB employees.

Now they want a new building. I think all of their decisions need to be approved by the public before any become law! This is the second year that taxes have gone up! For What?
