    I just don't get it I'm a life long Paterson resident and taxes

  • Dingo jones

    I'm a lifelong Paterson resident and my property taxes keep going up while the value of my property keeps going down right, SO SOMEONE TELL ME PLEASE " where are my tax dollars going ? I know where they are going, Down the nearest TOILET. Paterson Police are WAY OVERPAID. You can see the salaries of every municipal, county and state worker and cops are so over paid. Where is the sheriffs department in all this ? They are writing tickets in Wayne. It's a shame Paterson hasn't changed since I've been alive and that's 50 years.
