Here we go again, folks.. Our self serving city government bending us over and shoving it up our a$$ so they can get a guaranteed free ride on the tax dime..

"A retirement task force voted Monday to recommend to City Council a tax increase to fund a $1.7 billion liability to the Police and Fire Pension Fund. While it likely would be a 1.5 mill property take hike -- about $150 for a homesteaded $100,000 home -- voters may be asked in November if they would prefer a sales tax."

With all the people looking for jobs I highly doubt that there would be a recruiting problem.. A retarded baboon could do the job of a JSO cop and you dont even need to know how to shoot straight...

Sheriff rutherford can kiss my a$$.. He is nothing more then a self serving pig riding on the tax dime.. I have more respect for a cockroach..

"Last week, Sheriff John Rutherford and Fire Chief Martin Senterfitt outlined their concerns about inadequately funding the city's pension obligations, saying it is leading to a recruiting problem for their departments."

Reject those tax-hikes. Period. Greedy public-service unions got themselves into an un-financable mess ... now they can get themselves out of it.
