Even though rural property owners pay property taxes to the County, the amount of tax collected from rural land owners does not cover the full cost of services provided in rural areas.

We hope rural residents appreciate country living, with all of its charms, may include some inconveniences and that it may also require a bit of self reliance, ingenuity and patience on some occasions.
