What do I get for property tax?

Sir -- Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the property tax is being introduced to pay for public services.

As I live in a rural area I have never witnessed any public services apart from the secondary road outside my property getting a new surface once in the past 31 years.

I paid for my own well, my own septic tank, my own refuse collection, and so on. The road has never been gritted, so what am I actually getting for this tax?
