According to a recent article in the Times our city council is now telling the public that part of the reason they want to raise our city property taxes by 6.4% is to build a memorial to the people who died in the recent Walmart shooting.
Let the public do it
If a memorial is to be built is should be funded by donations from the public and from Walmart.
The city ought to tell Walmart that if they don’t contribute we will build the memorial as close to the front door of that Walmart as we can.
Contribute and we will put the memorial somewhere else.
Lower the increase
According to the article up to four million dollars of the tax increase would be put into a fund that could help fund the memorial.
Let the public build the memorial.
We deserve better
