Clay Hill started this petition to Lexington County Council and

Lexington County Council is proposing a fee of $250 to be added to your yearly property tax bill to pay for a mandatory county-wide curbside garbage collection program. This proposed fee increase represents a 50% increase on a $500 property tax bill or a $28 million dollar annual tax increase for the estimated 113,000 households in Lexington County. 

This past year has been difficult for many families. There is no need to add to the burden by passing punishing tax or fee hikes during times of economic uncertainty. $250 is a weeks worth of groceries, a power bill, a car payment, or a monthly drug prescription for many families. 

Tell your council person to reject this proposal and vote "No" to any excessive tax or fee hikes. If county government wants to implement significant tax or fee increases then they should have a referendum and allow voters to decide for themselves.
