As a taxpayer do you know where your precious tax dollars are going?
It may not be where you think!
Almost 10% of your tax bill goes to service long term debt.
Long term debt will increase from $16,834,699 in 2018 to $24,781,313.00, an increase of $7,946,614 by the year 2020, the equivalent of a whopping 47%!
The projected cost to service this debt is $2,208,931.00 an increase of 31% over 2018.
The projected Property tax increase will need to be 13% to cover the $1,331,349.00 shortfall.
