McKean County Budget Calls For Tax Increase

McKean County Commissioners unveil proposed 2009 budget which calls for tax increase

SMETHPORT — The McKean County Commissioners unveiled their proposed 2009 budget Wednesday, a spending plan that calls for a 1.5 mill increase in property taxes, bringing the millage rate to 8.75 using the 100 percent ratio adopted in 2004.

The hike will cost property owners $15 per every $1,000 of their property’s assessed evaluation, or about $70 a year for the average home, if one uses the figures generated when homeowners applied for a Homestead Exemption. More...

What? Nobody objects to this or has anything to comment? Must be the Mckean people are sleeping... As a soon-to-be retiree and married to one who is already there, this is not good news! We are literally GASPING to keep up with our taxes... and the flood insurance they claim we need due to a mortgage... we have just recently been informed that we live in a Flood zone. It has not flooded in our "zone" for at LEAST the last 100 years and who knows if ever? But we working folk have to bail somebody out. So amid the constant, pressing monthly reminders from one insurance payment or another, on top of taxes, on which we are all but choking, they are "sticking it" to us - again.

Gee...sounds like you are living in a place that is beyond your means of income....move into a more affordable place.

A more affordable place... yepper.. that is what we are being forced to consider. Sell our home of over 30 years for some trailer rental I suppose. Thank you for your sound advice. Retired people live on a fixed income. Prices go up, fees go up, taxes go up, but our income does not. So thank you for your understanding and simplistic reply. I would venture to call you Clueless but hate to call names.
