LoL...I would agree, as much as I love Baldwin City it's becoming too expensive to live here. This electrical increase, water increase next year, and the upcoming property tax increase we will have to pass in the next 2-4 years to improve our schools since all the previous tax increases where too short sighted and inefficient to the task is just going to make living here too costly for most average income family.
