HAYDEN: No on tax hike

Print Article

If you approve the city’s ballot measure on Nov. 6, Hayden will raise their levy rate from $1.23 per $1,000 valuation to $2.50 per $1,000 valuation or an increase of more than 100 percent!

The city has need of the increase to meet the extra costs created by growth. My question is if growth caused the problem, shouldn’t growth pay for the problem?

Please join me in voting NO to their 100 percent tax increase!

“If Patrick Henry thought that taxation without representation was bad, he should see it with representation.”
