Letter to the editor: State College tax increase a money grab

State College Borough Council approved an increase of 3.36 mills (from 11.04 to 14.4 mil) in the 2015 budget.

This is a huge 30.4 percent increase and an absurd money grab by the council.

The Centre Daily Times article should have mentioned the rate of increase, especially because it is such a large percentage.

The article seems to be minimizing the increase by hiding the rate and by breaking it down in monthly amounts (instead of a yearly amount).

The council members who voted for this massive increase in taxes would prefer to hide this information. Voters will definitely not be happy with this.
