Make it easier to pay taxes
Have you ever wondered why we are denied the opportunity to pay our county property taxes by credit card?
Not only would this ease the burden of paying our property taxes, but would create a paper trail which would make embezzlement much more difficult. Let’s face it, accepting cash and checks leaves them wide open for embezzlement, and this has been proven to be true in recent months in their offices. I have been informed that the reason they will not accept credit card payments is that it would leave a paper trail.
Everyone else accepts credit card payment, so why not our County Tax Department?
As citizens of Fayette County, I feel that if we put pressure on the tax office and demand that we be allowed to pay by credit card that they would do that for us.
Coughing up hundreds and thousands of dollars twice a year places a great burden on our backs, but it could be made much more palatable by using our credit cards to pay our taxes.
Speak up, my fellow taxpayers.
A big ‘Thank you’
I just wanted to extend a grateful big “Thank you” to the following members of the Fayetteville Rotary Club and the two youths who volunteered to pick up litter on Saturday, April 6, at 10 a.m. till 12 noon at the Fayetteville Town Park.
Earth Day is on April 22 this month, and the following individuals gave their time to make our Fayetteville Town Park a greener and cleaner part of our community: Fayetteville Mayor Jim Akers, Rodney Myers, Bill Wells, Don Beals, Sam Comer and his granddaughter Bella and my son Will Lanham of Cub Scout Den 5, Fayetteville Pack 149. They did a great job.
The Town of Fayetteville has been recognized nationally by the Keep America Beautiful Inc. and by the State of West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection “Make It Shine” Clean Community Award winning communities for its exemplary performance in reducing litter in the community, minimizing waste, recycling and beautifying their local communities.
In 2010, the Town of Fayetteville started the Keep It Clean and Green Solid Green Campaign during the 2010 Earth Day celebration to help encourage residents to reduce roadside litter and help increase awareness about the importance availability of recycling in the Town of Fayetteville.
