I received my property tax bill Jan. 21 and was pleased that my portion to fund Douglas County Schools only reflected a modest increase from last year. My pleasure was quickly diminished when I read the lengthy letter from Dave Gill, Douglas County treasurer. It read more like post-election “sour grapes” than the informative letter it was meant to be.
When my late wife and I moved to Douglas County in January 1976, our daughter was a senior at Littleton HS. She refused to go to Douglas County HS so we bought her a car and she graduated with honors at Littleton. Two houses and 47 years later my property tax has helped educate a lot of other people’s kids. From next door kids, Mike and Michelle to Kaitlin and Allie, and a bunch of other siblings in between, it has been a pleasure to know, and watch, these kids grow up. If I’m still here to see my property tax nearly double next year, I’ll just close my 90-year-old eyes and see the smiling faces of kids instead of dollar signs.
