welcome to minot - we're #1 in property tax rates and soon to be #1 in sales tax. it looks like it's time for a some new school administrators,school board members, and legislators since they don't seem to care how tough it is for people to afford to live in the 'magic tax city'.

They put padded seats in the All Seasons Arena? Seriously? I never needed that kind of plushness when watching Minot High hockey games!

It is clear they do not want to use the money to reduce our taxes. They must have some devious plans for it such as a new event center in Minot. Minot has a 60 year history of ignoring the public vote, such as the golf course, Hostefest building, new school; then going ahead with the project sometimes with private money, then taking tax money to help it along. Padded seats for the All Seasons Arena were a recent example. The seats were requested by Hostefest, a private entity. It is well known they have their eye on Fargo flood protection. We could pay the bill for many who scoffed at the river and built in it's path. Vote for those who would have more respect for our tax money--those who don't have a conflict of interest such as a business that stands to benefit by using the money for other than reducing our taxes. The Workforce Safety and Insurance kerfluffle a couple years ago exposed how corrupt our state government is.

I don't understand.....raising our property taxes to build new schools to accomadate the oil boom. Where is the tax money the oil companies pay to the state. Why does the property owners of the city have to foot the bill.

Thanks for a timely article. Why should we pay excess taxes for the state to have a huge stockpile of maney? It is wrong for the state to stockpile money. Is this one of those lessons our reps want to take to Washington? Their behavior makes a tax hater like Rand Paul look real good. Fast food workers are justified wanting $15 in Western ND because taxes and services are so high.

It is a rock solid plan, the plan to steal North Dakota's riches, that is.

Nothing to see here, move along.
