Area rating can even be seen to be punitive in some respects. I will use my own example as a Ward 2 resident. Since transit is one of the services available for my use I am charged for it. Since my children need to use the bus to get to school I have to purchase bus passes for them. This costs in excess of $1,000 per school year. Gee, if I just had the brains to move further out my taxes would be lower and they would get bused to school for free. Doesn't seem very fair.

One more point..........I want to laugh when I read some of the Spec's letters to the editor on this topic. The old "I have a well and septic system" from all those over taxed outliers. Water and sewer charges are separate from property tax. You pay these over and above your taxes.
