We told a few weeks ago that the Lake County Commissioners would love to raise taxes, especially the sales taxes. However, Commissioner Dan Troy is up for re-election so you can bet he will wait until after November to try and raise the sales tax.
The tax-hike discussed in linked article and video is a 3.4 mill replacement levy for the Lake County Board of Developmental Disabilities. The levy would confiscate and additional $58.20 per $100, 000 of real property value.
As usual, Kathy Sak does a great job by posting public documents; for instance, she posted the salaries of all the Developmental Disabilities Board employees.
We are planning an all out assault on the levy: read-up, watch the video, and get ready to rumble!!!
Note to Commissioners: Our work on this blog was instrumental in defeating the proposed legislation to raise taxes in Willoughby Hills, so you better rest assured that we will go after this one harder!
