The new 1% of assessed value placed on property taxes presents a very unfair distribution of personal contributions to supporting the cities infrastructure and human facilities.A homeowner paying 900.00 a year could be living next to someone paying 300.00 a year and both owners receive same neighborhood city and municipal services. Is this some kind of socialist idea to redistribute the wealth or allow everyone to pay only what they can afford without distinction to contributions into the cost of local upkeep? There are instances (many of them in Roswell) where a 190,000 dollar home is situated in close proximity to a 70,000 valued( or less) home. Why are people that can afford a bigger or better home being asked to pay neighborhood maintenance costs for those that have less expensive homes? Sounds very much like a welfare state, or socialism in the making.
