To the Editor:
I am concerned about the proposed Brownsburg North Annexation of 4,500 acres of land. I have attended public meetings related to this proposal and I, along with hundreds of others, are opposed to it. This proposal is going to have a huge impact on all involved.
We the home/land owners are doing all the “giving” and making the sacrifices. This will cause higher taxes and the Brownsburg Schools will lose $400,000 yearly in tax revenues. That was reported by the Superintendent of the Brownsburg Schools, Dr. Snapp, at the Brownsburg Town Council Meeting on May 16.
It will also cost us tens of thousands of dollars to meet town water and sewer codes.
We will be rezoned. I live in the country by choice and I don’t want to be part of the town of Brownsburg.
I feel that I am losing my rights as a homeowner because of what the Brownsburg Town Council is dictating we have to do so they can go through with their greedy land grab.
We also stand to lose thousands of dollars if we try to sell our homes because of the absurd proposal.
As I look at this, it seems as though we the home/land owners are getting nothing in return for all our giving and sacrificing.
“We the people” aren’t even getting consistent information and answers from the town council.
I thought I lived in America where the people had a voice, but my pleas for help have apparently fallen on deaf ears. I have written Gov. Mike Pence, and called State Senator Pete Miller, but received no response. State Rep. Jeff Thompson did return my call.
I have seen no indication that the town council has our best interest in mind or even care if we are opposed to their ludicrous demands. Where is my help???

Americans might run on sleep, but those living in the country's largest cities don't appear to run on much.
