It appears that our mayor has gotten the word about holding the line on taxes.
Up until the other day it appeared that city council was going to slap a 1% sales tax on our electricity and natural gas bills.
We also get garbage bills but it appears that they are not going to worry about adding $3 per month to each of our garbage bills in the form of a franchise fee. The franchise fee is designed to charge a city owned department for using city owned streets.
At least the 1% sales tax appears to be dead for the moment.
The Times reported that our mayor threatened to veto the sales tax after attending “community meetings” over the weekend.
We really would appreciate any information that our readers can give us that might let us know when and where those meetings were.
Listening to citizens does not appear to be one of his strong points.
Regardless of his motivation we thank him.
This is better
