What is the state of the local economy?

This point of view is in the eye of the beholder. It depends on whether or not you have a job; whether or not you live on a fixed income; whether or not you have a substantial amount in your bank account; whether or not you have health insurance and can afford to keep it; whether or not you have severe health problems; and whether or not there is the possibility that you could be losing any or all of these things that actually sustain your life. Losing any, part, or all of these, or living on a fixed income, makes the possibility of being taxed out of one's home a reality by increasing people's property taxes when all other life sustaining necessities are also constantly increasing. When it comes to parks, playgrounds, or libraries versus keeping people in their homes, I choose to support the latter.

Aren't we all on a "fixed" income? Well by they are constantly going down if you have an employee of the county in your family. They have gotten pay cuts and furloughs and are on the verge of losing their homes.
