Really?! Such a HUGE surprise that property taxes are going up around here! What a joke! Of course property taxes are going up. They do every single year, by just about every single taxing authority. So rest assured, it won't just be ECC, I'm sure that's just the beginning. It's disgusting... We tax payers are like a bottomless ATM machine. They tax us more so they can squander more every year. UGH.
