Is revenue shortfall just a coincidence?
Editor: Like most Langley Township homeowners, I received my property tax statement last week.
It contained a 2.79 per cent increase.According to the Township finance departmentt, the increase was needed to pay for an increase in budget of $3,461,808.
If that sum ($3,461,808) divided by the estimated 10,000 illegal suites, it comes to $350 per illegal suite. Why, that’s exactly what the license fee is for a legal suite in the Township. Is that a coincidence or what?
