Tax money thrown into recycling bin

To the editor:

Where do our tax dollars go?

I work at a storage company and every year the city sends our tax notices for each unit—almost 500 of them.

Nobody lives in these units but they send out notices for each and every one.

Also each envelope has a City of Kelowna pre-authorized withdrawal application, an envelope addressed to the city, and a City Views flyer, all of which goes to recycling. This is what you are paying for—a waste of money.

Gaynor White,

Kelowna
