It seems wrong to me that property taxes are, without a vote, to be increased by 30 percent. Is that an arbitrary decision? Is it to pay for the $3 million overcharge to NMHU by the city? and county? I don’t even have a trash container, which I requested from the city seven years ago. Doesn’t matter. This sudden announcement by Mayor Alfonso Ortiz is certainly unwelcome, and his duh, duh answers lead us to further questions.
Let us explore what exactly is being done with our tax dollars.
