Why should one property owner pay more for city services when all properties receive the same level of
The value of a property has no effect on the level of service that the individual property owner receives in the way of water, sewage, police service, fire services, side walks, storm sewers, garbage collection, library services etc for paying the property tax.
The arbitrary bureaucracy of the MPAC assessed value of residential properties by attempting to ensure that residential property values are fairly relative to one another should have nothing to do with the taxing process for municipal services.
All residential properties, regardless of such market values, receive the exact same level of municipal services no matter what any such perceived value might be. Residential property taxes should be an equal amount for all residents.
Further property owners pay for their respective us of electricity, water, gas and yet receive the identical municipal services no matter what the value of the property has been given.
The city's residential property taxes should be an equal amount for all residents regardless of any arbitrary property values set by MPAC.
