From a WCAV story – Last week, City Manager Gary
O’Connell proposed cutting the tax rate by four
cents.

…”It really doesn’t matter
what the tax rate is, citizens will still be paying a much higher percentage,”
said Jim Moore, member of the Taxpayers Association. People will still be
paying more because the tax cut is not enough to offset real estate assessments,
which continue to rise dramatically. Now that this has been said in a public
forum, perhaps others will listen and maybe, just maybe the people will speak
up.

From a WCAV
story
Last week, City Manager
Gary O’Connell proposed cutting the tax rate by four
cents.

People got excited, but not
the Charlottesville Taxpayers Association. They say this tax cut is
misleading.

“It really doesn’t
matter what the tax rate is, citizens will still be paying a much higher
percentage,” said Jim Moore, member of the Taxpayers
Association.

People will still be
paying more because the tax cut is not enough to offset real estate assessments,
which continue to rise
dramatically.

Now that this has been
said in a public forum, perhaps others will listen and maybe, just maybe the
people will speak up. I doubt it.
