    Get ready, Williamston residents, taxes will go up to pay for extra cops. It is sad, those that commit the crimes live in housing developments where rent is minimal, yet they cause mayheim that gives us who work everyday higher bills to pay. What a shame. It's common sense people, the state of our country is an in your face example of how...when the govt. spends money on welfare, housing crime prevention etc. etc. and those who pay taxes are making no more money or lose their jobs...more money is spent than what is in the bank....DEBT!
