Blair County, Altoona outpricing themselves

Well, here we go again.

The county doubles your property taxes. The city raises income taxes. The water authority raises rates. The Altoona Area School District wants to build a new school and raise taxes. Now the county wants to raise property taxes again.

I guess we don’t want anybody to afford a home in Altoona and Blair County.

We’ll just force people out of the area and not attract new people and business to the area because it’s too costly.

Just my opinion, but I don’t think I’m too far off the mark. I also would bet I’m not alone in my feelings.
