Baffled by property tax reminder PDF Print E-mail

Letter to the Editor:

Did you all receive that very bright tax reminder in the mail recently? Weren’t you a bit surprised? I?was absolutely baffled.

This notice was sent to anyone who pays their property taxes in two parts, in January and now in July.

Imagine Vilas County having so much additional monies that they decide to waste some on this unnecessary reminder to us taxpayers. Apparently, after all these years, the reminders which we all have stashed away in our file drawers or on our calendars isn’t enough.

We also have reminders in the newspaper and on the television prior to due date. But I?guess that isn’t enough either.

My question to the powers that be who decided to budget this additional expenditure is—Where were these additional monies this winter when our secondary roads were almost unpassable with ruts and ice, or this summer when  the sides of the roads are so overgrown with grasses and weeds that it almost looks like a path for your car?

I really think this reminder was completely unnecessary and a wasteful expenditure. Guess I will have to file it with the other two reminders I?already have filed away.
