Re: 38 per cent increase in Clearwater water taxes – parcel tax roll review

I am curious how our local Council, in their wisdom, is justifying a 38 per cent increase in my annual water taxes. I certainly did not know that there was a review underway regarding my property; otherwise I would have been able to provide Council with some pertinent facts. At any rate, a 38 per cent increase seems way over the top.

Anyone else have a problem with this? I will be at the meeting on April 10 to voice my complaints, and will make sure that my complaint is in to Council, in writing as per Council requirement, by April 8.
