Don’t pay unapproved property taxes

To the Editor:

During the past few months, it has been reported in the Stratford Star that the Town Council has been unable to approve a 2017-2018 budget and mill rate despite numerous meetings and discussions.

Last week, it was reported that, despite this situation, property tax bills will be sent out with a mill rate of 39.70, which is higher than the current rate of 38.99 and even higher than the rate that those council members who wanted a tax increase for the 2017-2018 fiscal year had proposed.

Unless and until a new mill rate is approved by the Town Council, I will not pay any increase over the property taxes I paid last year (already over $13,000). I encourage all Stratford residents to do the same.

    Its ridiculous that our mill rate and taxes are so high. If we had economic development,residents could share the burden with businesses equitably. nAnd by the way,what ever happened to “point stratford”? nI guess promises only resurrect themselves at election time.
