We should maintain high standards for ourselves and others can benefit as well. Letting things go for lack of funding shows poor financial planning in my opinion. We elect the commissioners and they work for us, the taxpayer, and should be making an effort to maintain as well as improve what we have. Take care of what we have instead of letting it deteriorate. Sometimes you need to look at the bigger picture and strike a balance for everyone. At least make a dedicated effort. Raising fees for substandard facilities is a slap in the face! How can anyone slight those who go play at a nicer place for less money? Just because we live here doesn't mean we have to accept less!
Jeez, maybe someone should be checking the freezer in there??
Previous years registration was not given as an option to my "helper". Good to know when I send her back with the previous registration.
Not one comment in the entire article addressing WHY sales tax revenue is down. Maybe residents are facing budget shortfalls as well. Where is the discussion to tighten government belts or how and where to save. What can you get from beating a dead horse?
Implementing a use tax is admitting local consumers go elsewhere for major purchases. And why is that? Penalize those who buy elsewhere instead of being competitive. If the only difference in price of an exact same item were city sales tax there might be a point. However if you can go elsewhere and still save $5k on that same item a use tax will still be a savings. It will benefit our community coffers without contributing to local gouging. In today's cyber world shopping around is a given unless you don't care how much you pay.
I can see state and world news anywhere, local news is the only reason I subscribe. I receive 2 publications from out of state and both have local news for their area. Small town newspapers should have a healthy relationship with the entire local community. Not favoritism to certain views, but all sides of the facts. Just my opinion, am I alone in my thinking?
Sheesh, a little hard to follow....
Good for you, Michelle!
thank you for not only standing up for what you believe, but not backing down to negative comments from those who obviously form their opinions on what the media chooses to show them. You go girl!
the simpleness of the solution obviously escapes them...kudos to you
