Go ahead and vote for it. Dr Smile and Big nose are immune from voter wrath, but McGrail you can pack your bags. We will get someone in who is not in bed with the city unions. The citizens see exactly what is going on. Mayor Sullivan I suggest you start scheduling these theft votes on the tax payers so more people can know about it. 2:30 in the afternoon to discuss this is corupt. All these taxes will do is increase maney in city workers pockets. Next election we vote to repeal.

Another McGrail ploy. No REAL figures, and a timetable RUSH JOB to PUSH IT Through!

No Kevin does not have to pack his bags! The reason is because they have been packed for sometime. DON"T FORGET YOUR TOOTHBRUSH.

Leave the voters a note as to where the $25 million to the now $29 million plus is buried.

The real question is do the tax payers and utility rate payers have the resources to bail the city out and keep it from going into default?

What excuse will the Slippery Six give when they decide not to lower the millage rate after the diversification taxes are locked in. Property values are improving at a reasonable rate. Run a tight ship for now and new taxes could be avoided. Spend like this city Manager wants to and we will go broke, much like he did in Troy Michigan.

How much has the city spent Zuckerman Consulting that the city manager John Szerlag brought in to date?

Why is there no outcry from the morons that chastised the former city manager for bringing in non city individuals to provide third party evaluation?

Best part is much of the feed back is the same findings that were already paid for.

Hey how is the $82,000 repayment plan working out to repay the city by the police dept.? Why is there no updated information on this? It would be interesting to see how much OVERTIME the 11 officers have made since the third party mediation mandated the repayment.

Just basic accounting. You know Revenues, Liabilities. In this case Liabilities and the Revenues to repay it!

The county is considering a one cent sales tax which the residents of Cape Coral will have to absorb with an additional 7% Utility Tax on electricity, and a separate fire assessment Tax. What splendid planning by an inept, out of control city council.

A new name has been in discussion for the city of Cape Coral, Florida...TAX CITY!!

Where are all those idiots from the malcontents, misfits or rejects? Whatever they are called. Funny not much talk from them about these taxes. You malcontent misfits have really shown me your true colors. Now go back to your holes.
