Jackson County new tax payment system down. This is what we get for voting a baseball player into government just because he could turn a smooth double play.
I liked the new payment system. It was super easy to pay

It was nice when it finally worked. Kept getting the ‘somethings wrong’ message all of the 30th. I’m sure that was a very busy day for the system, but seems that should be anticipated. Got through late in the evening.

The article says Schulte references a 10-15% increase in assessed value as the 'big' hike in those neighborhoods. That would be somewhat normal in my opinion.

Sounds like a calculated effort to increase assessments (or create the appearance of this) in middle/upper class neighborhoods to counteract the disproportionate impact of the 2019 assessments on working class neighborhoods...

Also, hiring staff before a new computer system would be a waste, said Legislator Dan Tarwater. “We can’t hire 40 people and train them on the old system and then train them on a new system,” he said.
This seems like a "perfect is the enemy of the good" kind of situation.

On a timeframe of 2025 his statement is insanely stupid. That's three assessments out.

There is no way they are going to be able to repair this focking mess before the next cycle.
