only way to stop it would be to get a petition or initiative up for a vote.
think you may have just 30 days to do it.

if it came to a citizen vote it would be tougher defeating it than the 7.5 mil nonsense.

city will claim we're broke and need pool repairs or need to make pmts on 1 mil for a downsized pool project, which may be pretty reasonable and preferred over a general tax.

old trick from politicians.
they scare the heck out of people real bad with an outrageous project and cost. we beat it and can breathe again. they come back with a half price one that is still 3 times to high, but we bite on it because they seem to have seen the light and compromised and we feel a little sorry and bad for them.

might as well give em the 125k addn cent burger tax for repairs/much smaller project. it should be enough to get us a smaller project, and maybe a big outdoor pool later. really need to hope they don't come back with a 3 to 4 mil project. watch out for it. it's still to much, but the fooled formerly scared voter might fall for the compromise/feel sorry for them trick.

more anti tax than most, but I have less hate for the burger tax than a general tax. poor and elderly are affected less and wealthier folks eating out are the main payers.

we never need to do a general tax for a covered pool or any other such nonsense.

The hamburger tax Is a joke. The city is getting rich off of it don't b fooled. They are. So where is the money to prove it? I don't c anything here where it is being utilized right. That'd why all the restaurants are failing just handing the city money.
