per YEAR for a $100,000 house?
Are you kidding me?
NO. Not at all.
If passed, the Fairfield County Parks levy will cost the owner of a $100,000 home only $12.25 per year. To put that into perspective, that's $1.02 per month, or less than 4¢ per day.
To be fair, the average assessed value (for tax purposes) of a home in Fairfield County is around $146,000. That works out to $17.89 per year, $1.49 per month, or 5¢ per day.
A nickel. People throw nickels in a jar. They lose 'em in the couch cushions. You can't buy ANYTHING for a nickel anymore - even bubble gum machines want at least a dime.
OK. So what do I get for my nickel-a-day?
Restrooms, mowing, playgrounds - Rock Mill, Lockville, Cross Mound
Hiking trails, biking trails - Tourists spending money
Covered bridges, scenic ridges - Beehives making honey
Waterwheels, grinding grain - Picnic tables, equine stables
1800s Baptist church - Graves preserved, well deserved
Thousand year old ancient mounds - Flora, fauna all aroundZane's trace - a doctor's place - Fishing, hunting (with a bow)
Blacksmith shop and stargazing
Old school houses - barn raising
You're tellin' me this costs a NICKEL? - C'mon Fairfield, don't be fickle!
