Tax hike in Douglas County protested

Posted: Updated: Dec 10, 2013 10:46 PM

Some Douglas County residents joined forces with a local tea party to protest a tax hike on Tuesday.

Over the summer, the county commission voted to raise local taxes by 23 percent. Tuesday's protest was held before that evening's county commission meeting.

Local organizers said the county commissioners are behaving like big spending Washington politicians. They proposed a $10 million cut in spending. The group says they have specifics about what can be cut.    

There is no word if the protest had any sway over county.
