Editor, The News:
I just received my property taxes from Maple Ridge and my taxes have gone up 10 percent, which is simply insane.
There are no extra services in my area. Actually, services where I live have gone down.
It’s obvious to me that our mayor and council are not getting the message. There is no way property taxes should go up every year.
I would think that a 3.9 percent increase is on the minority side and still no excuse to increase property taxes every year.
It seems to me that Maple Ridge loves to waste money that they don’t have and the property owners are paying for it with tax increases.
I hope at the next civic election that we elect individuals who will take city hall back and get it under control when it comes to spending and taxes.
