I was impressed by the explanation of the Public Safety Bond and have a question. When the bond is paid off, will my tax bill be reduced? Bonds that have been repaid in the past have not resulted in a lower tax bill.
The increase of taxes by 17 percent will not increase our population. I am afraid that it will do the opposite, and it is hard to pay off the bond with empty houses.
We have got to find a way to attract business and people to this city, and increasing taxes is not the answer.
