Look at all the commercial and industrial we have and we still pay that much? Oh and I almost forgot we also have a high level nuclear waste dump with a generator attached that pays chump change.

That is why we have moved to Bourne...so much easier on the retirement budget...besides being close to the water, no traffic or stop lights and peaceful year round...we love it!

I doubt the new high school and new senior center are fully reflective of the rate. Plus there will be additional costs for south high in the near future. I predict in just a few short years, Plymouth will be very near or at the top of this list.

Plymouth wants the best of everything regardless of the impact on residents. We live with traffic gridlock, a power plant identical to the one in Japan, endless commercial and industrial enterprises....and town leaders who never met a vacant building they didn't want to buy. This town is no bargain and it is only going to get worse!
