early bird, property taxes are a result of budgets from the county, park, city and school. to lower property tax, you need to lower the budgets, that means a cut in services. what would you like to see cut? Police and fire take up about 1/2 of the prop tax for city according to the budget online. too much snow removal? is our county jail too big? should we have a zoo? more kids in classes? what do you suggest?

The state legislature has appropriated more of their budget to schools which should result in a 30% reduction in property taxes. Minot school district prior to the 2011 flood had dropped their mills because of increased state funding. However, the flood caused the district to increase mills again in order to get schools up and running as well as make up difference between FEMA moey and actual costs. Should be better now.

Citizen24, good for you I'm glad you believe all that garbage. Well actually I'm sorry for the future people like you are enabling. There are givers and takers in this world and I think I know where you stand.

Early bird....so basically you are the taker? You want other citizens in north Dakota to pay for your local services? And again I am simply asking what local service you would like cut. Oh and by the way...you aren't smart enough to know where I stand.

Citizen24.. You and so many like you always fail to see middle ground and compromise. Why be so extreme? I've been paying my property taxes and all the other taxes we pay for over 40 years, how about you? If you see no waste in most budgets you will never understand any explanations anyway. Have a good life.

63% were for Legacy and 37% were against Legacy. I was a 37% voter. I wanted to get things in order before starting a savings account.
