Maricopa Community College District Plans to Raise Taxes (again) by Another 2 Percent

As true unemployment numbers continue to rise, it isn’t the private sector that suffers.  It’s the government sector!  In keeping with tradition, Maricopa Community College plans once again to squeeze more juice out of the lemon.    

Such a small amount.  So is "death by a thousand paper cuts."

This is just the beginning.  You will probably see more calls for K-12 overrides, too, so hang on.    

Here’s the article:

The Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board will host a public hearing on May 27 to receive input on a proposed property tax increase.

The board is proposing a 2-percent increase that would raise taxes from $125.73 a year home with an assessed value of $100,000 to $128.24.

The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Maricopa Community Colleges District Office, located at 2411 W. 14th St. in Tempe.
