COMPLETELY untrue! Where do you get your information? Unlike most areas in California, Phoenix has done a remarkable job of planning for the future and actively monitors water usage and sources. In fact, the water plan is revised periodically to ensure sufficient water resources are available looking out 50 to 100 years, all while taking into account projected growth rates.

Interesting. I did not read the entire article. Wonder how much of Arizona's property tax goes to water?

I am tired. Time to hit the hay. Good luck to folks in Iowa........

Good article, thanks for posting.

Regarding how much of our property taxes goes to water, it must not be much, since my property tax bill here in AZ is less than a fourth of what it was in Iowa!

Iowa property taxes are high(r). I found other sites, but being able to add your zip makes more sense.
Howard County Maryland has a higher property tax rate than Baltimore County. So as usual it's location (They can get more in Tax from Southern Howard residents because of DC proximity).
Some of the sites I found were not accurate. Saying the state property Tax is this % per state is to broad, at least in my mind.

OMG what an idiot. He “carefully researched” and then essentially felt his choice missed the mark in every way? I think the problem was him more than it was Iowa. For reasons I won’t bore people with, I relocated to a micropolitan city in Iowa 7 years ago from out of state (and from a major U.S. metro as well). Aside from the obvious lesser degree of urban diversity, on balance, I am content. I can always fly off to get my big city fix. I am surrounded by nice and friendly people in my traditional early 20th century neighborhood and I have made a number of good friends while living here. It is the substance of people that is important and valuable, not their pedigree or cosmopolitan bona fides (although I must admit that there are people here and everywhere who, frankly, are yokels and always will be).
