Residents are paying the highest property taxes in the nation, and paying increasing local and state fees, higher rates for utilities while struggling with an increasing cost of living.
Many lost their jobs as businesses and social service agencies closed their doors or reduced their hours and became unable to further extend the credit used to cover the state’s unpaid bills.
