4 comments on “2010 Montgomery County Effective Tax Rates‏

  1. Pottstown and Pottsgrove School Districts have the second and third highest millage rates in the County. Wouldn’t you think substantial savings could be realized with consolidation?

  2. I do believe Pottsgrove was part of the Pottstown School District and then they pulled out.

    All this division and fragmentation has caused PA to lag behind in growth and jobs. It has caused our cities to suffer, created sprawl and communities based on race, class and economics instead.

    Not working so well by the looks of things.

  3. so true, division is not working. this data took the breath outta me. our dysfunctions run so deep and yet we pay so much by comparison.

  4. Get a clue!!! Something needs to change! It is incredible that the extremes of the list are that far apart…think of the mean should you combine resources and share burdens. Fragmentation is costing us dearly and soon it won’t be just a hardship to a handful it will become a hardship to those not yet strapped and tapped out – will the issue to problem solve and fix it become important then??? Why not NOW!!!
