A community of slave decedents on Georgia’s Sapelo Island are in danger of dissolving with a property tax hike that could force them to move.
County officials argue that property tax values have been kept artificially low in the past, and they are just trying to create a tax that reflects how much the land is worth.
But residents say they aren’t getting the same government services to reflect that tax hike. The island hasn’t had a school since 1978 and residents must bring their own trash to the dump instead of having a collection service.
