    other costs? Like What???? If you take a GOOD look around you’ll see that Schuylkill county is populated by people living in poverty. Now our taxes are going up? That means more people in poverty. Have they gone over their books and seen how many residents are already behind in their taxes???? So now they’ll be even further behind and the board will be spending phantom money.
