Do Langley Township staff really stand behind a recommendation to council that property taxes might have to go up as much as 9.7 per cent – if so, what ivory tower do they live in?
We are seniors, living on mainly pension income in the Salmon River area-our property taxes have gone up over $1,500 a year in the past five years?
Our pensions are tied to inflation and we get a “increase”? of under two per cent each of those past years – our Langley Township property taxes have risen almost 50 per cent.
[Councillor] Kim Richter is right-keep any tax increase within the cost of living –i.e. around two per cent.
Enough said. Please keep in mind whatever the mayor and council do for the next election.
