City taxes and sorry service
By Eileen Small
February 21, 2008
To add to the voice: I have TWO properties in K-kan and get
taxed out the you-know-what on both. I have paid all my taxes
on both. It wouldn't irk me so much if I saw that I got something
for my money. As it stands, the city hasn't picked up my home
trash in over a month because the trash truck won't come down
my hill and won't sand the hill on which I live so they CAN come
down it!! DUHHHHH!!!!! And just generally does less than anywhere
I have ever lived for the taxes they charge!!! I know a woman
whose Dad retired from the city and she tells me that 10 years
ago, the streets were taken much better care of than now. Surprise,
My house is at the bottom of a bad hill --- but if we (personally)
can have it plowed with an old 1970's plow (which I do because
otherwise I'd have been snowed in all winter!) that we bought
for $500 and then get up and down said hill in a 4 wheel drive--what
is up with the city? Maybe their workers should come out of
the local doughnut shops and hey --- WORK???
I don't mind paying taxes for services rendered. Paying taxes
so that some upscale neighborhoods get great service while I
get none irks the heck out of me!
