My taxes just went up about $31

Don’t most local press stories usually say a $200,000 home?
…the bill on a $100,000 home would be $632.50 — $2.50 less than this year…

…An average water user’s bill will increase by $2.05 a month,
from $34.70 per month to $36.75, or a little less than 6 percent….

A $200,000 home = $5.00 per year less

A $50 monthly water bill = $36 per year more

= My taxes just went up about $31

It is dangerous to be right
when the government is wrong

What will the local news media say?

Greensboro city leaders finalize 2010-2011 budget
Our dominant media are ultimately accountable only to corporate boards
whose mission is not life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness
...but the aggrandizement of corporate executives and shareholders

Greensboro City Council Expected To Approve Property Tax Decrease,
Water Rate Hike
No mention of $40 million of new debt and $4.9 million in spent savings?

This is just the beginning George. Greensboro's unnecessary investment in RanRez is costing taxpayers millions for years to come. The city bought 53% of it and has no use for it. However, the city cannot admit its mistake so excuses must be given instead.

Greensboro's monopoly water works has expanded by 75% during a 15-year decline in business and the only people who know are the ones reading my dam scam report. You can help by urging others to Google two words - dam scam.

George, we used the $200K mark before. This year we used the $100K number so that it was easier for people to multiply to figure out what a bill on a $300K or $500K house would be.

The average home in Greensboro is worth $180K or $170K.

Hi Amanda,

I agree
