Lower TAXES (Especially for Senior Citizens)
I believe that our taxes are too high, and I would always advocate lowering them. In addition, we have a growing problem of senior citizens being taxed to the point that they can no longer afford to live in their homes. There are cases of lifelong Allendale residents strongly considering moving out of Allendale, simply because they can no longer afford to live here. This is very sad and unacceptable. If this trend continues, it puts Allendale at risk of losing people that have given their all for our town, it's time we give back to help them stay with us! Many communities throughout the United States have specific tax breaks for Senior Citizens, Allendale should also.
