In this time of economic downturn these elected officials just DON'T get it! How can you raise taxes on people when things are so bad?

Its a shame that the Borough Council's only means of creating revenue is to raise taxes! East Bangor is mostly single family dwellings. They should have put more thought into purchasing a new 4x4 police Durango when they had a perfectly fine car. It seem that they need to scale back their police department spending while in an economic time like this.
