What is going on with the Haverhill Property Tax Rate?

I'm reviewing my property tax bills and wondering what is going on.

It seems to me we have somehow eclipsed the 2.5% rate most recently and I can't figure how.

Haverhill is becoming more and more expensive to live in - while I still see lousy service from city hall - it's disturbing.

Pretty bad when I don't even feel safe sending my children to Haverhill schools and pay for private schooling as well - is anyone else seeing this with the tax rates? I know Duncan usually has some good information on this some maybe he and some other can weigh in as well.

What is the state of our city?  I'm thinking it's currently pretty bad.

Who are the real 'welfare' queens?

So I'm reviewing the majority leaders calendar today.....112 'working' days total in 2014. How much is that per day they make plus perks?

Regardless of party.....(only a fool strictly focuses on that now)......this is TRUE welfare...paid for by you and I while some of us struggle to get a day off only once in awhile.

Your tax dollars at rest.....(sorry if the formatting is off)
