Tea Parties, Taxes and the Township Of Pittsfield.

A test for a township just east of the bunker here in Pulaski. Are the people of Pittsfield mad as hell on higher taxes like those at tea parties or will they bend over and take higher taxes. Hey Pittsfield, do you have any stone barns to sell? That could get you an easy $100,000.00.

"Pittsfield referendum on exceeding levy limit set for Tuesday
September 10, 2009

PITTSFIELD — Township voters will decide Tuesday whether to increase the levy beyond the state-imposed cap for ongoing road maintenance and construction needs.

The special referendum asks voters to decide whether the town should be allowed to exceed this limit for the next fiscal year and on an ongoing basis by a total of 38 percent or about $200,000 to pay for road repairs and construction.

At its annual meeting this spring, the town approved a motion to put the question on a special referendum in the fall.

The levy limit of 3 percent set by the state has restricted the town’s efforts to address its roads, said town chairman Keith Deneys. The town budgeted $66,000 in 2009 for road construction and borrowed $132,000 to cover the cost of resurfacing Brookside Drive, an arterial street that needed repair.

What's 38% anyway. If the feds can spend 8, 9 10 trillion dollars , what's an extra $200,000.00
It will be interesting to see the results.
