Review of Moline, Illinois

Don't Move to Moline Illinois
Star Rating - 7/23/2013
I have live in Moline since 2006. Since 2006 my property taxes have doubled I now pay for garbage pickup, water run off fee, recycling fee, you have to pay if you call the police or fire department. This city now looks at our homes as their private piggy banks. The tax man keeps raising the values of homes to get more tax money but when the owner sells their home it is no where close to what the tax man claimed. Over taxing is one big reason we have so many forclosures. The street now are full of pot holes. Our Mall is becoming so vacant with Sears now leaving. Moline city food tax is 10% so many just go to East Moline (7% tax) or Iowa (7%). Food is taxed in this city. I only wish Moline leaders would use tax money to provide services to it's citizens instead of railroad museums or the new police station that looks like it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. A new City Hall is soon to come. Moline is following in the tracks of Detroit.
