Greensboro 101; "City Council approves 5 percent tax increase", but it's even more

"During its June 18 meeting, Greensboro City Council approved a $566.1 million budget for the 2019-20 fiscal year. This budget includes a property tax rate increase of three cents to 66.25  cents per $100 property valuation [Editor: a 5 percent increase]. The City’s last property tax increase was 11 years ago, the Fiscal Year 2007-08 budget.

The last property tax increase came right before the 'Great Recession'

How much of the expected tax increase 
is going to pay for the unannounced, clearly anticipated Performing Arts Center losses
which Greensboro City Council members, staff among others definitely understand
yet overwhelmingly most taxpayers are ignorant of via lies of omission?

...Residents will also see a $2.50 per month per household fee allowing the City to continue its recycling program.

Another $30 per year regressive tax on our lowest income citizens,
like when they upped the tax on autos a couple years back

...Water and sewer rates increase by four percent for both customers inside and outside the city limits...

While the City sits on $345 million in cash

...The average bill for a customer inside the city limits will increase $1.81 per month, while the average bill for a customer outside the city limits will increase $4.52 per month.
