Higher taxes penalize taxpayers
James Padgett, Minot
Once again the taxing authorities in Ward and Minot are significantly increasing property taxes while handing out lavish payroll increases, dreaming up new and expensive ways to spend our money and build their own Legacy Funds to just sit there. All of this during the worst inflation in over 40 years. These property tax increases will not only wipe out any paltry pay raise we might get but also force us to spend less locally as we try to make ends meet.
