Re: NOW mini-mansions and disgust

Seems like the town could collect something for the hydrants - as you say, a
fire fee or something.   We have city water but not sewer;  we're toward the
edge of the town and the sewer lines don't cross the 50 foot conservation
area behind us, but we still have to pay the sewer tax that's based on
street footage.
Not that I'm usually infavor of additional taxes/fees, but this doesn't seem
quite fair!

Speaking of which, Marge, I hear our esteemed state legislature approved the
increase in sales tax today.  Apparently that doesn't count as a tax
increase to them.
