Why must I pay taxes to both the County and Town?
Towns and counties provide different services. The majority of County tax money goes towards funding the school system. The County also provides fire and rescue services, the court system, landfill, dispatching services, health and welfare benefits, and many other services enjoyed by Town citizens. So you are not paying double taxes, you are just buying services from two separate providers.
