This came in from an alert reader:
I found what I thought was quite interesting in the CIP Review (COVID-19 Response) Dated April 13, 2020. It is where a street service fee was going to be added to the November 2020 election to be voted on.
38223405022020553051305.PDF is a copy of CIP Review (COVID-19 Response) Dated April 13, 2020 from them the city council special meeting.
38082805022020052909552.PDF is a copy of Community Health & Public Safety Proposed Bond Election Discussion (which was reduced to only a Public Safety Bond that was passed in Nov. 2019)
At the time that the other components of the discussion was redrawn from the election, it was implied that these were to be covered under the 2019-2020 budget which you will recall was for $1, 046,842,912 billion.
Yet it seems like they were trying to slip this into the 2020 election until the COVID-19 came along and caught them.
By way of this post I am asking him if he would send us the slides that demonstrate his point.
Few of our readers will go through the entire presentations.
We deserve better
A street service fee? Would someone explain that?
Is that a walking and driving tax?
