Property Taxes Increase by 4% in Berlin, Connecticut

Berlin, Connecticut Taxpayers Love Paying Higher Taxes!

Your Berlin, Connecticut property tax bill is going up by 4% so be prepared to shell out another couple of hundred bucks in July.

518 Berlin taxpayers voted for the $70.4 million budget last week…don’t you just love them?!  What was going through their minds?  Who are these 518 people?  Have you seen their mugshots in the post office?

If only another couple of hundred of voters had voted against the budget, we might have been able to keep that extra $200 in our pockets this July.  I’m glad you can afford to pay the extra taxes because I can’t.  My clients are having difficulty paying me as it is; I can’t raise my fees, like the Town of Berlin.

Do you think it’s time to throw out the present management and elected officials who supported this budget?  $70 million for the high school to be renovated; and now $70 million for an annual budget…what’s with this $70 million?!

I am a Certified Public Accountant.  I would love the opportunity to go through the budget and start line-iteming all of those approved expenditures with my machete.  Our country is on the verge of an economic collapse and instead of our Town government lowering taxes, it raises taxes!  Go figure.

It’s time for a change, a big change.  And if the Town officials cannot exercise more restraint and concern for the taxpayers’ wallets, it’s time to start issuing pink slips.

Who’s in charge of this government?  If I ran a company like this, do you think that I would still have a job?!

Hey, Berlin taxpayers, it’s time to get angry and organized.  It’s time to speak up and act.  Otherwise next year, it’ll be $75 million or $80 million, and an additional $300 hundred dollars in taxes!

    I am Counting on

    Energy From GOD Our Sun Free Energy. Very good our churches installing solar panels. For all that live near by and all that see this on our Churches. If your Local Government will not look to the Future go to a Church.

    The Island of Maui in the Pacific Ocean is truly a Tropical Paradise like many of the Hawaii Islands that has used Solar and wind Energy for many years. Its Seascapes are as Beautiful as its Landscapes. Many like Hana’s by Kipahulu in Maui were the coffee maker runs on the Sun Solar Power. Her freshly picked Tropical fruit smoothies are the greatest. You make the electrical power on a bicycle for the blender to run. Banana, Mango, Papaya, Guava and of course My favorite Coconut and Pineapple are just some of what you can make.

    Many of us that live and visit Maui already have Solar and Wind Energy. Very soon many more will and some day most all will be cutting the line to the Power Utilities Grid. Stopping them from putting their hands in our pocket book.

    Free Energy from the Sun. WHY pay for it, to some one else? Your Local Utility Provider is NOT A valuable resource in Your Time Of Financial Need. Or the GOV they just want to TAX you more. LOOK TO SOLAR AND WIND ENERGY on the internet it has been the learning platform for our Schools and Universities for Years. In this case look to the House of GOD. It has always been the best place for the truth. The Church and the Bible.

    Many in the Island of Maui and other Islands have been off the Grid for years.

    There are many Reasons Home Owners Should Consider Going Solar there has to be at least 100 Good Reasons. Soon Hawaii will Lead with showcasing Solar Energy To the World.

    GOD Bless for the good work all do to Help the Church Light the Way.

    Now if we can only get our World Leaders to Read the Bible More, and look to the real Paradise Heaven not Hell, and stay out of our Pocket books.

    The Lord’s little Helper

    Our Libraries and Schools should have gone Solar long ago.
