DO YOU WANT YOUR TAXES TO GO UP AGAIN!!!
Well it is that time of year
again.The Town Manager, Diane Barnes,
is preparing the town’s annual budget.If she stays
true to form, she will ask the Town Council to approve roughly a two million
($2,000,000.00) dollars increase in the operating cost of the town.This
will undoubtedly include a Cost-of-Living Allowance (COLA) for all employees of
If you like having your taxes second highest
in Androscoggin County, then sit back and do nothing.There is a
good chance Lisbon can move into the highest taxed town in the county, passing
Lewiston this year.Can you imagine that last year Lisbon passed
Auburn?That is just ridiculous!!!
The problem is no one in the town government,
Town Council or the Town Manager is interested in cutting the cost of operating
the town.Several options to cut cost and reduce our
taxes have been suggested and ignored by the Town Council.
Now is the time for the
people to speak up and tell both the Town Council and the Town Manager, enough
is enough.We want our taxes reduced this year.If the people
sit back and do nothing your taxes are going to rise again this year.Can you afford that?
If you do nothing NOW, it will be too late to reverse the
decision of the Town Council.Call your
Councilors and the Town Manager and tell them to start finding ways to reduce
our taxes and no increase in taxes this year.
