Hooey LOL, www.savagebluffs.com This is a link to the development across from that NEAR 0 TAX DOLLAR properties you stated. Take a look at those $200,000 5 acre bluff lots. I did the assessment on that Mt. property at the lowest rate and it take at the least $157,000 a year out of the budget. The honorable thing would be to for the state to do something with it, or pay the TAX.
Rip off!!!! Grundy County does more with less. State laws written toward metro while rural county suffer. Metro school systems get a lot more funding and WE ARE A NATIONAL BLUE RIBBION SCHOOL while metros have the funding. So how dare you judge our county? WE pay the same gas tax as you, BUT, there has not been a road project that WE where promised in more than 30 years, while every TDOT road fund is spent in other areas and again we pay the same taxes as YOU. How dare you judge us when the state took 8 million dollars and bought property that took tax dollar from us? And YES WE ONLY HAVE PROPERTY TAX that funds our government. We have no wheel tax. Zoning, and permits, so again how dare you judge us. The state bought the property across of a multi million dollar development and the lots sold for 175K, and you say it is the best thing for us. The hard working people of Grundy face life in the face everyday, this article reflects the FACTS that the state has taken a large part of our lands and OUR TAX DOLLARS from property, GAS, and SALES, Gross receipt and many others and spent those in other areas. Remember, WE DO MORE WITH LESS. Grundy has suffered long enough. I very eagerly await your reply.
