wonder how much the trash bill is going up since the real estate tax is forbidden to be raised

Harvey...$58 a year to nearly a cost of $1 per day. And my taxes are going up 12% thanks to the last property reassesment. So I lose both ways. At this point after 45 years....I am considering putting my house up for sale. There is no stopping the cost increases that will be coming the next 8-10 years across the board. The publicly funded pension system in this Commonwealth is way out of hand. Some estimates put renting a home more beneficial than owning by the year 2018.
