Buzz,

I believe that any introduction, renewal, or increase in payments to a government entity is considered a tax. All you need to secure the tax is to put it on a piece of paper get a Boob" to read it and make it as a motion, get another back up boob to support it and then two other professors to vote to steal some more money from the taxpayers. What's really amazing is that not one of them can explain the tax or how much, in total, it will add to the city coffers or take from the pockets of the taxpayers.

Buzz. just by asking and questioning this procedure, you make the city proud. Just keep reminding all the sheep in the city, the cliff is getting closer.

The 1.13 mils added on the winter tax bill is a millage replacing the drain tax on the water bill. Certain members of the commission have stated one replaces the other - no increase. Seems to me, at least for this year, and prior to them implementing the permeable surface tax those who own houses with higher taxable values will pay more than others and it will have nothing to do with your water consumption. Anyone have an old bill to compare?
