With many thanks to our great Lake County Auditor’s office, we have a list of all “continuous” levies in Lake County for you to review.
We are trying to make Lake County taxpayers aware of the perils of voting for “Continuous” Levies. Substitute the word “FOREVER” for the word “continuous”, because it means just that. You will be paying for these property taxes for eternity (….or for the time you live in your house – whichever comes first….)
Why do politicians and unelected bureaucrats like “Continuous” levies? The simple answer is that since they know that the tax money will always continue to flow in from the taxpayers, there is no need for them to be accountable to the taxpayers.
Please be mindful of this when you vote for any tax levy. Vote NO for any levy that has the wording “for a continuing period of time”…….the deception is subtle to the uninformed voter.
