Second District County Commissioner Mike Schatz took exception to being called a “bum” by a person, or persons, who used the Internet to criticize the Franklin County commissioners because they approved a minor property tax hike for the general fund and the road and bridge fund. The story that caused the criticisim was on The Missourian’s website and in the print edition.

The commissioners made the slight increases because of a drop in the total assessed valuation of real estate and pesonal property. It was done to make sure the county had about the same amount of revenue as in the previous year to meet financial obligations. If they hadn’t made the slight increases in the two taxes, cuts in services likely would occur. The commissioners did the right thing.
