Bothered by the disjointed effort to clean the Chesapeake Bay [Letter]
Maryland's former Republican governor hit Harford property owners with a flush tax to help clean up the Chesapeake Bay. The current Democratic governor is taxing (a fee) property owners of Harford with a tax (fee) to control storm water runoff that pollutes the Bay. Homeowners will now be taxed for [flushing] and for storm water. This is known as the gold mine experience, homeowners give the politicians gold and the politicians give us the shaft.
