Great Falls and Cascade County Property Tax Decrease

Great Falls and Cascade County Property Tax Decrease

Good News for Great Falls and Cascade County residents.  The County commissioners have drafted a budget for this year that does not increase, but actually decreases our property taxes without any reduction in services.

In an age where taxes seem to always go up, this is a welcome surprise.  Perhaps the federal government should follow their example.

I commend the commissioners for doing a great job with the budget and hope they can keep up the good work in the future.
