About 3 weeks ago in teotihuacan Mexico
I have seen a lot of chatter today on FB about the new assessment. It never fails to amaze me how many residents have no idea how the revaluation works or how the taxes are calculated.
My neighbors don’t seem to mind me whipping out my Stihl leaf blower and I’m on a corner lot. I even clear their front lawns for them, it takes me about 30 minutes to do all that. The key is moderation, I do it after noon on the weekends, not early morning. My neighbors are both old and I can tell they have a hard time raking their leaves now, after they’ve been doing it for decades. Same thing with the snow, I shovel for them (I don’t own a snow blower) because I love the physical exercise. If we all took care of each other instead of whining and complaining about everything every day we won’t have these crazy laws. I know younger folks who are more grumpy than my neighbors!! I’m dreading the day they are gone…
The estimated 2024 total annual taxes are calculated using the 2023 budget. I think that means when the annual 2024 budget increase is finalized, it's likely every single "estimated 2024" annual taxes, as indicated on the letters, will end up being an underestimate for everyone.
This thread is one reason I really like MOL. Discussions can go from really serious matters to burgers and to everything in between. ( Unless you consider burgers serious.) My vote for a really good burger is Tierney's Bar on Valley Road in Montclair. They use a coffee can to make the right diameter of the burger. I will try and sample some of the other spots. Does anyone still eat a burger that is cooked rare?

Long time residents are increasingly being forced out of their homes due to the increase in cost of living in our community. Residents who purchased their property for under, often significantly under, $100,000 are not in the same category income-wise as those who are paying $1,000,000 or more to live here now. All of these costs together add up to a for sale sign appearing in the front yard. Replacing a leaf blower may be a small expenditure to some and a final straw to others.
Sometimes I wonder if people here are secretly lobbyists for the petro industry.
