Ever wonder where local tax money goes or what it does? Although many of us certainly complain about taxes, few of us are probably aware of exactly where our percentage goes once the check is mailed. Gas needed in the Sheriff's cruiser? Grass mowing needed on the Courthouse lawn? Electric bill payment needed for the West Shore Public Library? These are Cumberland County taxes at work. Although I may appear to be advocating a county tax increase, I am actually advocating greater resident awareness of tax money through the local publication Cumberland County Government.
