This is where your recently voted for extra tax millage will go. Currently seven men dating back to 1929 will be honored with your money.

If you thought your money would go for enhanced restrooms or other needs, you would be wrong.

Why don't u let tax payers vote on this? Shouldn't it come from private funds? No disrespect but just trying to implement proper procedures

This is similar to the zoo and DIA taxes. The money is taken under false pretenses. They state one thing to convince voters to approve a millage and then spend it on projects that go in other directions.

I mean who can protest some memorial to fallen heroes? But yes, it should come from private funding and it would be more meaningful that way in my opinion.

I can just picture Robert standing there for a photo shoot when the work is finished next September. When election time comes, snapshots of the celebration and text showing how sincere he is will be everywhere.
