To the editor:

Brigantine’s property-tax bills will be mailed next week. Then, we will be able to see all the figures and determine how much we each have to pay to live here. (Keep in mind the results of the recent revaluation when comparing numbers.) The total tax rate is now 1.707, an increase of 31 percent. This includes a 27 percent increase for the four county tax rates, a 36 percent increase in the municipal purpose tax rate, and an 18 percent increase in the district school tax rate.
