Dear fellow tax hikers, we sadly report that two more businesses in Springdale have closed. Lucy's and George's Pancake House and Family Dining, and I Buffet, are the latest to bail out of Springdale. Some would say, who can blame them?
We happen to like Springdale. We believe their plethora of strip malls and low-dollar housing make this fine city one of Hamilton County's gems.
We do not believe that the high-tax polices of Springdale Mayor Doyle Webster and his daughter, Springdale Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Julie Matheny, are to blame for these business closings. Just because higher taxes increase their operating costs doesn't mean they are more likely to go out of business. Who ever heard of higher costs being detrimental to businesses? Our Messiah Barack Obama doesn't believe this and neither does the Royal First Family of Springdale.
Royal Doyle Webster and Legendary Campaign Expert Matheny have indeed been supporters of higher taxes. For example, both strongly supported this year's big Princeton School District Property Tax Increase. The Princeton School District was already spending more money per student than 98% of school districts in Ohio, but that wasn't enough! Our father-daughter tax hiking team knew that a 6.5 mill tax increase was needed so Princeton can spend even more.
This Royal Doyle/Campaign Expert Matheny tax hike added $197.63 in higher property taxes per $100,000 home value, meaning that the average Springdale homeowner's property tax bill will increase another $95. Companies have to pay this tax too. Well, at least the ones who haven't gone out of business.
