Letter: Taxes keep going up and up



Well, our Vancouver City Council is at it again. A Nov. 30 Columbian story reported, “City will increase property tax rate.” Raising our property taxes, raising our sewer, water and garbage rates. How do they expect us to continue to pay them? I am fortunate and am still working, but what about our seniors who are on a fixed income? I am guessing that if they want to keep their homes they will have to give up a couple of meals or most probably not get the medicines they need.

The city is taxing us out of our homes. Keep it up and we will all be standing on the street corners, homeless and asking for a handout.

Way to go, Vancouver. So much for being a great place to live.
