We pay taxes for things we don't use

After reading the article in the March 28 morning paper regarding the property tax debate in Long Grove, I had a good laugh about Mr. Borawski's comment "That's a heck of a lot of money to pay for roads that I never use."

As an Arlington Heights resident, I went over last year's property tax bill. I do not use: Arlington Heights Park District, Harper College, high school District 214, school District 25, Arlington library, roads and bridges in Wheeling, Cook County Forest Preserves and Cook County health facilities to the tune of $4906.18. I know that I choose to live in Arlington Heights. But, sometimes we have to pay for things we don't use.
