State Stiffs Decatur For Over $1 Million

…and surprisingly we will have to foot the bill!

What am I talking about? Well apparently due to the state’s budget shortfall, Sonny won’t be giving us back the funds handed over by the city to support the state’s “Homeowners Tax Relief Grant”. That means no HTRG relief on our second 2008 property tax bill. Which means expect a significant increase on your next bill, unless state Repubs and Dems convince the governor otherwise.

The mayor discusses it all (and tells you how much more he’ll be paying this year) over on his blog.
