@lightswitch: If the City Manager "put out to the press a 2 point reduction," give us the source or reference the article that the press allegedly reported this lie you hope to spread to the low information voter. You are a liar and a con artist. If you would ever give the facts you would probably find it easier to live with yourself. Constantly giving false & negative information. Why? Speak the truth and set yourself free!

With the 7% Utility Tax there and the soon to come SEPARATE Fire Assessment TAX in place the END RUN around the 10 point millage cap by the state is now offset. At 7.70 and 2.30 for free board left this ship is closer to taking on water (State Over site) than what it appears to be. It can't come soon enough because this city will NEVER get its spending in line with its revenues. Take a look at the $151 million dollars in wages that don't include the cost of the pensions!

The 1/4 millage point was not promised as it sounds in the article.

If you recall the city manager put out to the press a 2 point reduction. That faded to a 1 point reduction and then to a ZERO point reduction.

The only reason we are receiving the 1/4 point reduction is 1/3 of the sham diversification is in place. The next 1/3 this illegal Fire Assessment which will be battled in the Supreme Court with appeals I may add will be in place after the elections and set tax rate. The residents have been fed pablum once again. So keep voting for those that will TAX you out of your homes! Not to worry though. All your city employees have a 3% raise, 3% guaranteed pension increase and a 5% BONUS to cover THEIR increased TAXES.

The 5% BONUS alone will put over $1000 to $11,700 in their pockets for THIS YEAR!
