To the editor of THE EAGLE:
Everyone is talking about supporting the renovations at Monument Mountain Regional High School but no one is talking about how high that is going to raise our taxes.
We had our increase because of the Community Preservation Act that was a shocker and now we want to add about $101 per 100,000 more?! It’s bad enough that the towns have our houses jacked up in evaluations. The town says my house is worth so much more than the recent appraisal, and now, let’s add even more!
My question to all of the people in these towns who do not see our taxes as a problem is: What about those of us who have lived here forever and cannot afford this increase and are now being forced out of our towns by the wealthy who do not care about us to begin with?
