Augusta County, Virginia.
Remember when we were talking about the outrageous property tax reassessments here in Nelson County last year? Seems like our neighbors on the other side of the mountain are facing the same thing this year. Only in their case, a group has organized calling themselves, Augusta Citizens Against Unjust Assessments. This week they held meetings to protest the taxes and have apparently convinced some in power that now is not the time to be increasing property taxes with countless numbers of layoffs in the Augusta area.
Lynn Mitchell of Augusta runs a website there called SWAC Girl, and has all of the details. It is a very good read, and we wish these people luck. Perhaps they can stop now what we faced here last year.
