It is obvious to me that the politicians and officials in Liberty County have not gotten the message. People all over our country are pulling their belts tighter and saving money when they can. We have all had to change our spending habits and reduce the waste. When do you suppose the politician in Liberty County will stop the wasteful spending and start reducing the taxes that home owners in this county are paying? If the value of our houses have been reduced, it would make sense that the taxes we pay on these houses would also be reduced. Unfortunately that is not the case. I am pretty sure that as the values of our houses drop, the miledge rate will go up because the spending has not been reduced. Our officials continue to waste money on useless trips and higher wages and anything else that they want. They do not know the meaning of savings and budgets. To the person that said we cannot possibly vote all of them out because it would be embarrassing. I say we cannot afford to keep them. They are arrogant and wasteful.

They certainly are arrogant and wasteful, but your chance to vote them out has come and gone. Since only 1700 of the city's 20,000 registered voters actually went to the polls nothing has changed. Apparently nobody cares. It's business as usual in Hinesville. The only ones to blame are those of you who sat on the couch instead of excercising your right to vote and change course.

You need to appeal your property tax assessment! I can tell and show you how to do it.. I have my down to a little over $19,000 value. The home values across GA have dropped 10% over the last year I can see it going down more. Remind me around tax time and I'll explain the process.. then the city will really be in a world of hurt.

I don't care what your evaluation is your taxes will increase at a rate equal with the increase in the budget of the taxing authority.

If the budget increases at a percentage which is greater than the percentage of increase in the digest (value of the total taxable property in the county) then your taxes will increase at an equal rate.

It has been my observation over many years that only a handful of our commissioners and council members even understand how this happens.

Yet we continue to re-elect those who deliver new things for the people in their district.

We have become sheep.

Got it! You care about community change when it affects your wallet! Not Schools or opportunities for kids. Well, you keep electing them. You want change make change don't talk about it! Elect only those who push for budget reduction and cutting the fat, waste!
