I was thinking paying $7800/year in property taxes on a modest home might cover my share of taking care of such basic services.


Pfffffffffft, $7800, chump change. As long as you are breathing and have a red cent in your pocket, it will never be enough.
I lived there for years and still kick myself for all the taxes I paid (hundred of thousands of dollars) while I lived there! Luckily I was able to leave while it was still relatively easy.

Meh, this is just capitalism, and 'muricans are always telling me capitalism is a good thing.

So what's the problem?

Who told you that was capitalism? You were misinformed. This is nothing more than evil greed, not capitalism.

This isn't a tax on rain, it's a tax on big companies that pave over everything but cheap out on putting in fresh water drainage. If Walmart puts in a big parking lot and the runoff floods out neighboring homes then it's only right that they pay for it.
