What Do You Think About the Board of Selectmen’s Decision on Taxes for 2013?

Let's talk taxes.

The Board of Selectmen decided on the tax levy burden this week. The tax burden for the fiscal year 2013 looks a lot like they did this year, with a CIP of 1.73, putting the tax rates at $11.65 for residential property and $18.98 for commercial property for every thousand dollars.

So the floor (comments section) is open to any taxpayers who want to weigh in on taxes in town. Can’t imagine anyone enjoys paying taxes, but are they fair?

"Any thought given to, you know, trimming the budgetary fat, rather than automatically going for the tax hike? No, I didn't think so."

What to do think? Let us know!

High time Brookline became a city! Instead of the unelected department heads running the town . . . A Mayor should be employed and subject to the voters!
