Who thought up taxing property on post?
Letter to the editor

Editor: Who thought this up?

Taxes are collected so that political subdivisions are able to provide services to the citizens within.

I’m sure that Liberty County will not branch out its fire, police, trash pick-up and assorted other services to Fort Stewart.

If this is approved by some other non-thinker, the only result will be that the costs will ultimately be passed on to the Fort Stewart soldiers.

As I look around town at the pawn shops, auto parts stores, eateries, car dealers and other targeted retail establishments it appears that Hinesville/Liberty County already makes enough money off of the military.

Give them a break. They certainly give us a break!
