Today’s story in the Trib was a clear indication of the contrast between the City Council and the School Board where taxes are concerned. The School Board authorized $407 million in taxes and did so despite loud and vocal opposition for a school building plan of dubious necessity.
The City Council faces not only ancient sewers in need of replacement but Federal Sanctions for not doing the work. The cost while significant is $64 million one seventh of the Red Plan’s Cost. But they are approaching the decision like a little kid picking up a big, nasty spider.
