Hardin resident asks for info. on tax increase

Letter to the Editor
This year, my property tax statement has increased by 35.52 percent over 2016. I believe this is a rather large increase. Not many people can tolerate a greater than 30 percent tax increase.
I realize that all costs increase, as do property valuations. I also realize that mill levies were voted on and they show that increase. My tax shows that the county increased more than 20 mills and the school increased more than 40 mills. This is a lot to absorb at one time.
If I could get a response from both the county treasurer and commissioners, that would be great. A little explanation would help answer questions.
