Confiscate! Confiscate!

We haven't been home owners that long, so I don't know how unusual this is. But we just got a notice in the mail that, if I'm reading it correctly, states that we have been assessed nearly $4,000 in street repairs. Yes, our street needs it badly, but where does the city think that we and all our neighbors are going to get $4,000 each? This ain't a ritzy neighborhood.

Yah, our City does that too. They figure a "per foot" price and then total up the total street frontage of your home and then bill you that amount.
They usually have a 10-20 year pay off, or when you sell the house it's added into the cost of the home.
Just be glad you don't live on a corner lot. Those folks get a double whammy!

I live in Rhinelander, and although we haven't gotten a bill like that (yet) I dread the day someone decides we need sidewalks (we don't in my opinion) because I am pretty sure what Dave said in the previous comment would hold true: we would get a "per foot" bill of the total cost.
