CVRD sucking money out of residents

Once again the CVRD is going to try and suck more money out of the residents of the Cowichan Valley. Watch for it folks.

Once again the CVRD is going to try and suck more money out of the residents of the Cowichan Valley. Watch for it folks.

Bylaw 3930 looking to reap $600,000 from a portion of the CVRD including the Town of Lake Cowichan to take over and manage the Cowichan Lake, river and tributaries which will include construction of a weir etc. Each of us involved, (and it does not include all CVRD residents), will pay $9.13 per $100,000 value of our homes to feed this hungry monster (CVRD). More bureaucrats etc.

This should be a provincial issue not a small portion of the CVRD. As well, bylaw 3918 will look to steal another $2.65 per $100,000 valuation to do what is called flood management.

This piles up on top of my third problem and that’s bylaw 3931 to put money into arts and culture this time $0.85 per $100,000. So if you have a home worth $200,000 you will pay additional taxes of $25.26, a $300,000 home will cost you $37.89 and $400,000, $50.52. So here we go again, higher taxes, more bureaucrats and more control.

This has to stop and stop now. Most of us on fixed incomes with little increase in income are already being taxed to death. Put a stop to it get, an elector response form, fill it out and get it to the CVRD to end this thievery.

Only you the taxpayer/voter can control this nonsense. If you don’t care, do nothing, if you do care make your voice heard.
