Tax base

I have to ask the caller about the tax base in Shamokin. What does it matter if there hasn’t been a reassessment in years? Does that mean there should be one? If the tax base is low, does that mean it should be raised? Will all those people on a fixed income magically produce more money once taxes are raised? Maybe Shamokin should cut some expenses instead of wringing more money out of me just for living here. I’ve worked my whole life, got my pension and now you want to cut into it because you don’t know how to handle money? Look at your base.
