Tax increases

It all adds up!

Raising taxes, ad infinitum, could encourage citizens to vote with their feet and stampede. At best, increases should be ad interim.

Be careful. You may create a desert without an oasis.

Regarding the article “Council trying to address $2.8M in back fines” (Aug. 21):

If you repeal the panhandling law, we are going to have windshield washers at a lot of corners in town harassing folks.
