I am so sick of having to pay for Dekalb County missuse of money! How are you people going up on my taxes when my property is worth nothing today because of the missuse of money? This is crazy. It took 5 people to say yes to my taxes going up, however, no one is putting any more money in my check, my utilities continue to go up, my house value continues to go down! WOW

I feel the same way about the increase in the taxes when the property value continues to go. My property value is worth much less than when it was purchased. B.Harper
