Don’t my property taxes pay for Liberty’s parks?

Did you know that the average family in Liberty pays $37.50 a year in property taxes to support parks? That means each and every family member has access to the parks, playgrounds, trails, tennis courts, disc golf course, dog park, play fields, spraygrounds, and more, for less than $3.15 per month. Tax dollars actually fund only about 18% of the funding needed to operate the Parks and Recreation Department facilities, programs, and services each year
