Think the park will be the same when E-town's "ILLEGAL" 2% restaurant tax is repealed in this next election?

Well, the restaraunt tax is 3% and it is not going anywhere since the bond that the city has for the sports complex is tied to that tax. Sorry, but you really should get informed before spouting off.

I am not a fan of most taxes, but this one is bringing good things to this community. And I prefer having it at least until the bonds are paid. How else would you propose paying for it?

I assure you, it will NOT be repealed.

Your ignorant comment had nothing to do with your kid and/or t-ball. It had to do with people today buying stuff with credit and then walking away from the debt like they are owed something.

If you don't like E-town's growth then get off your couch and do something about it. Or better yet, move away. Battletown could use a few more people like you, and there is no restaraunt tax!

The sports park has already shown the growth. There has already been a football tournament that drew teams from as far away as Columbus Ohio. There is a baseball tournament and a lacrosse tournament there this year that will both draw teams from around the entire nation. So your ignorance to true growth is laughable. Get off the couch and get out and participate instead of being a wanker that sits behind the computer screen and complains.

It's sad that so few local leagues get to use the park and the city budget doesn't allow for sufficient upkeep of the other city fields/parks. Citizens need priority not corporate commerce.

I originally liked the idea of the restaurant tax funding the tourist attraction: the restaurants (and hotels) pay for the the attraction, and the attraction brings business to the restaurants and hotels...good way to keep the general tax payer from having to fund tourism. However, now that we've seen how the city classification has impacted the liquor laws we know that the whole scheme ultimately hurt small businesses and overall city growth. I'd rather change the classification, let new small businesses develop, and then use the new business revenue to pay the bond.
