We see the budget!Taxes are to benifit the taxpayers,not government, just as the Constitution is for the people:To protect the people from Government, not the Government from the people.What in this budget is for the Endicott residents?So far,all we see is how much is required to have what again, in Endicott?It was stated to meet the needs of residents in which they are acustomed to!And what might that be to cause a tax increase!Show the money.What are we paying for and how much.What is the service and how much are the residents getting from this service?What are the true cost and then recheck it again to see how much is and will be acceptable to those who are paying for it.We will look into it.I want to know what my money is paying for and how my family is effected by it.I also want to know how much is it worth and if we are even using the service and how many other residents are using the service that we are being charged for.Not just a select few but all the tax payers have the rights to equall shares.What is Endicott doing to generate revenues and new business?Why would anyone want to live here when Endicott is offering nothing to the resident but tax increases to pay pensions!The only revenues we are seeing is what our 35 ppolice officers are handing residents in tickets they have to support what again!It is not the new windows for the police department since that is something else we are paying for in taxes.I need new windows too.
