How Is The Town of Somerset Able To Raise Real Estate Taxes 15% Increase Of $597.34 And Circumvent And Suppress Proposition 2 ½ $$$$$
Because of the harassment at the Somerset Highway Department with two females one who was fired Cindy Dollar a Highway Laborer and the other Zeina Madeiros Highway Clerk whose desk was moved from the highway department to the town hall. All over HARASSMENT claims coming from the NOW FIRED Somerset Highway Superintendent Brian Martin and Foreman Christopher Simons, who is now the Acting Somerset Highway Superintendent. The “HARASSMENT SCANDAL GATE” was covered up by Somerset Board of Selectmen Hollie E. McNamara “HEM” “Lyin Crooked Holly Lobby Propaganda McNamara”, Davey Paul Berube “DPB” “Little Entertainer Dancing Davey Berube” Michael Jackson and Somerset Town Administrator Richard M. Brown “RMB” “Down Goes The Town Flunky Dick Brown”. The Town of Somerset is facing again another lawsuit by our FAILED FLUNKY leader of Somerset for covering up what a department head had done wrong.
This one of the reasons why Somerset’s Real Estate Taxes are going up 15% an increase Of $597.34 with the help of Somerset Town Administrator Richard M. Brown “RMB” “Down Goes The Town Flunky Dick Brown”, Somerset Board of Selectmen Hollie E. McNamara “HEM” “Lyin Crooked Holly Lobby Propaganda McNamara”, Davey Paul Berube “DPB” “Little Entertainer Dancing Davey Berube” Michael Jackson” holding the hands of Somerset Board of Assessors Donnie Pollard Setters “DPS” “Crooked Baker Donnie Setters, Pork Pie Donnie, Con Casino Don” Steven Buscemi and Michael S. Correia “MSC” “Little Double Spike Taxes Mikey Correia” to doing what they want. That’s to raise the Somerset home owners real estate taxes so the citizens of Somerset pay for their MAJOR SCREW UP’S. They need money to pay for the lawsuit and you’re paying for it.
So the next time you see Lyin Crooked Holly Lobby Propaganda McNamara, Little Entertainer Dancing Davey Berube, Michael Jackson, Crooked Baker Donnie Setters, Pork Pie Donnie, Con Casino Don, Steven Buscemi, Little Double Spike Taxes Mikey Correia and Down Goes The Town Flunky Dick Brown ask them “How is the Town of Somerset able to circumvent and suppress proposition 2 ½ and raise it 15% an increase Of $597.34$$$$$ And when they are done telling you their BULL SHIT LIE, tell them how much they really SUCK 100% and by the way “YOU’RE FIRED”, PERIOD…..
Public Utilities/Municipal Buildings/Infrastructure/Finances:
The Somerset Selectmen never put in $11 Million Dollars in unfunded retirement liability on post-retirement benefits, excluding pensions for Bristol County Retiree’s. The unfunded liability, mostly for retirement health benefits, has been “growing at a rate of $1 million a year” since fiscal 2012. That is now up to $15 Million Dollars for fiscal 2017.
Massachusetts Municipal Partnership Act – Municipal Relief Package- Aimed at relieving pressure on property taxes on cities and towns by Revenue-Raising Proposals that will give us Property Tax Relief.
(A cost-savings proposal which has become law and if cities and town don’t join the G.I.C. or a plan that is as good or equal or better than the G.I.C., and the communities that maintain status quo will in fact have a major reduction in local aid from the state, because the state is not going to give aid to pay a high premium of health care insurance that can be cut by 50% just by joining the G.I.C.).
Meal Tax on Food & Beverage of 6.25% + .75% and a Hotel/Motel Tax on Room Occupancy of 5.7% + 6%.
Also by letting cities and towns join the States Group Insurance Commission (G.I.C.) the state’s health insurance plan. Bargaining away with the Town of Somerset Health Plan Group (H.P.G.), which Somerset is self-insured health fund and Blue Cross & Blue Shield is the carrier, Commonwealth of Massachusetts States Group Insurance Commission known as the (G.I.C.).
This could have been done in 2008 but never happened.
In 2009 the Town paid 75% that is $5,887,450.00 the employee and retiree paid 25% that is $1,962,483.33. The total cost is $7,849,933.33. This would have taken the town’s largest debt from a whopping astronomical Expense from $8 million to less than $4 million over 50% savings that is a Total Saving of 20 million over 5 years.
In 2014 the Town paid 75% that is $6,768,081.77 the employee and retiree pays 25% that is $2,256,027.26. The total cost is $9,024,109.03. This would have taken the town’s largest debt from a whopping astronomical Expense from $10 million to less than $5 million over 50% savings that is a Total Saving of 25 million over 5 years. The Town of Somerset is not allowing or doing this program. Why?
The Somerset Selectmen took out $5 Million Dollars out of the Town of Somerset Health Plan Group (H.P.G.). Somerset voters passed this purged article made by the Somerset Selectmen at the May 2010 or 2011 Annual Town Meeting to take out $5 Million Dollars out of the Town of Somerset Health Plan Group (H.P.G.) and moved it into undesignated surplus and voted to spend it to keep taxes down. And the money has not been replaced.
Somerset is in a 6 Million Dollar DEFICIT
Somerset revenue is RAISE and INCREASE THREW TAXATION 15% Of $597.34 DEBT
Somerset has NO NEW BUSINESS GROWTH
