Bagging leaves just another tax
To the editor,
The falling leaves are going to cost the middle class person in town more money. We might as well just call it another tax.
Bag the leaves yourself or pay someone to do it or if you have someone cutting your grass its going to cost you more. I have been a resident of Stamford for more than 70 years and a taxpayer over 50 years and it only gets worse. Our sewer usage used to be in our tax bill so our politicians had a new way of not raising our taxes but just gave us a sewer usage bill.
My kids want me and my wife to move but it is so hard to do. It’s OK to build a new city in the South End of Stamford but what has happened with the taxes that our being raised by all those apartments? Is Mr. BLT paying his share. It looks nice and great for the millennials to move in and pay less then New York rents. Please Mr. Mayor, help us longtime seniors that own in Stamford; let us stay here and tax the proper people.
