Taxes in Oshawa are too high
Reprinted from Letters to Editor, Oshawa This Week, July 2
To the editor:
When are the people of Oshawa going to stand up against the council and fight the taxes in Oshawa?
I live in a 1100 sq. ft. home in north Oshawa and my taxes are $4,062 per year.
This is outrageous.
I tried to sell my home last year and every comment on why I couldn't sell was the amount of my taxes.
My taxes are soon going to be more than my mortgage payment.
Editor's Comment---Perhaps one of the reasons why city council introduced the General Vote which guarantees their re-election is to protect their jobs even in the face the huge public debts they've generated and their generally incompetent management of city business.
