When jobs and income return to their previous levels in our area, house values will return and tax receipts will rise. Already, 2013 has seen tax receipts from county income taxes go up 30 percent! Elkhart County’s economy is one of the fastest recovering economies in America the last two years. We don’t need a new tax.
The commissioners should do what hard working Elkhart citizens are doing… live within their means. The families of Elkhart County need the money much worse than county government does.
