Property Tax Bills Finally Arrive
Many months behind schedule, the first installment for 2008 property taxes in Marion County finally began arriving in the mail today. I was pleased by the more than $1,000, 30% reduction in my bill this year. Of course, the City of Indianapolis is going to hit us with a 50% increase in our sewer bills over the next few years and take some of that savings back. At least that is a fee for service, and the need to stop dumping raw sewage in the White River is a compelling one, not to mention the fines the federal EPA will sock us with if we don't make the long-overdue improvements to our wastewater system.
