While the tax is minimal I do notice that it cost about One Thousand Dollars per abandoned vehicle based on the 2020 numbers. That sounds rather high.
Abandoned vehicles should have an owner associated with them so why aren't they picking up the cost of dealing with their own abandoned vehicles? Just wondering.

A dollar here, a dollar there, soon you're talking real money! Just left Home Depot with some lumber and paint. Both now have "state fees" attached along with the now close to confiscatory sales taxes that have been imposed. With our government, there is NEVER enough money for them to do for (to) us. Then there's those of us who live off of El Pintado Road, which the Town inherited with incorporation, but has done virtually nothing to make sorely needed repairs, and yet you drive over to Richard Lane, and it can't get enough maintenance, go figure.
