In this instance, i believe cities should be able to dip in here. The state could rule on many things useful, but since taxpayers r on hook fer 10 years for dia tax, cities could siphon some out to be more sensible to public. I could really care little about dia. Around 70% Property taxes go to county,and look how extremely irresponsible ficano and company have been overspending on lucrative pensions. Perks etc. Most of these people have done terrible job and don't deserve half their salary.cities can take some and give some back to beautify etc.
