Protesting the FP-5 $157.26 per parcel tax

Share with:

We just received some letters from the county regarding the expansion of Service Zone FP-5, from what it looks like this went from a few small areas to now include most if not all of the unincorporated county adding $157.26 to each parcel with 3% increases, this is no paltry amount, This seems like an unreasonable burden to foist upon residents, many of them live on fixed incomes etc. I am not against paying for services but an additional $157.26 is a bit much.

 If you haven’t already received yours, click the link the link below for more info and protest form.

    Given a triple property tax raise, coupled with new MBSD school proposed tax, our DEPRESSED AREA is will likely get hit with quadruple property taxes. In short time, leases and rentals will also take the hit. Many of our residents and homeowners are tapped out. That means they haven’t the fucking money to maintain their livelihoods because of new proposed unconscionable oppressive taxes.

    But then is it’s more important for the LAFCO, the county and MBSD to get those funds? Note I am not affected by the triple taxes because we TPWD ratepayers have been paying this for a number of years. All the while we see cuts, cuts, and more cuts, upon more and more cuts — just like Wonder Valley.

    I will vote against the MBSD proposed taxes (even though I have taught school in another state). I have personally seen how other depressed school districts deal with budget issues. And have seen better educated students without new taxes.

    We have been downsized so dramatically that the San Bernardino County Firefighters, IAFF Local 935 tells us we are underserved.

    Many residents are going to get smothered by all these new taxes? How can they live? Has one elected pubic official chastised the county for their proposed new taxes, or raised the issue for renters and struggling homeowners?

    Is there one freaking public servant left?
