Armageddon and tax revenues

Opinion: Letters To The Editor

I am writing in opposition to the idea of raising waste disposal rates to prevent a rise in property taxes. For a democratic society to function without chaos, there is a need to match tax revenues with the corresponding expenses.

In this day (near Armageddon) we might as well finance everything with long-term zero coupon bonds. Then matching principal can be ignored! I am 73 and do not expect to live 30 more years (ha ha, sure). As for school expenses, I seriously doubt the children will still live in Oak Park to be hit with paying for their own expenses. My own expectation is that Armageddon will solve all long-term debt (Daniel 2:44).

I will go along with raising fees,if,and only if,I am given the choice of opting out,and hiring my own disposal service.Allow me to shop around for the service I need.Perhaps every two weeks,perhaps competition would lower prices.I know the type and timing of my personal disposal needs better than the village.
