Commonsense Property Rights Coalition to Feature Tiny Houses and Preparedness Speaker
The Common Sense Property Rights Coalition will meet Monday November 2 at 6 pm at Fred’s Fish House in Mammoth Springs according to board member Kevin Jotz. The main speaker of the evening will be Patricia Uvenges of Mammoth Spring. Uvenges is an acclaimed speaker on disaster preparedness, homesteading and the tiny house trend and will share personal experiences.
The meeting will also include an update on the Oregon County property tax assessment, the state laws regulating the State Tax Commission. Many citizens are concerned because their property tax assessments have gone up by 50% to 100%. State law mandates that any increase of more than 15% must be accompanied by a physical appraisal of the property.
There will also be an update on the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Agency attempt to purchase 2,500 acres in Oregon County to create a state park and efforts to fight that action by the PRC, the Oregon County Commission, Lt. Governor Peter Kinder, Senator Mike Cunningham and Representative Jeff Pogue.
“This is an organization concerned with protection of private property rights. The group believes that without protections of private property rights nothing else is secure. The right to own and reasonably use private property is a cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution, differentiating our country from others around the world. As John Adams, one of our nation’s Founding Fathers and our second president, said: ‘The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.” For more information at 417-264-2435 or 417-270-1724.”
