Baughman: Nearly-doubled property taxes unacceptable



I am ashamed of our Natrona County government. Our family owns property along Salt Creek Highway. The county imposed a 90 percent increase on our property tax. We have repeatedly asked for the reasoning behind the increase and received no answer. We have asked what increase in services we will receive and have gotten no answer. We failed in our attempt to appeal this ruling.

There are a lot of elderly landowners along this highway, along with young families. Many we have spoken to have received the same treatment with the same result. Why is our county government targeting these sensitive populations?

Will we get a 90 percent increase in response time by the sheriff’s department? Will we get a 90 percent increase in test scores by our students in the school district? I believe the answer is no.

Shame on the Natrona County Commissioners and shame on the county assessor. You supposedly work for us. We did not hire you to target our elderly and our young. Shame on you!
