This city sucks. all they do is raise taxes. How about cutting back? We have to, why not Freeport? Why must they think all problems are solved by raising taxes?

You raise a tax, people have less to spend. people have less to spend, so they raise taxes yet again. ts a never ending cycle and it makes no sense to me.

I would think you would want low taxes. That would attract more people and jobs meaning more tax revenue.
