We have 44 marked cars and. about 20 unmarked that's about 60 city cars.. To cover about 40 streets.. Go figure.. Who ever heard of a fire truck wearing out anyway. And why do we need a super duty crew 4x4 ?? Dumb just dumb.. We just got a new fire station ... Now we need another so he says..,it never stops wanting and wanting ... Do some management !!!

Yes I will. This city is growing and needs up keeping. Have you seen how old and run down some of the police cars are. Our parks are looking like crap. Most people won't ever even notice the tax but it will really help the city.

Yes I will support the tax because the cost of running the city has gone up just like the cost of our individual needs. We can't sit by any longer and just expect all our city services will meet our expectations. They need money to run the city! This tax is not large enough to hurt anyone. The group in white county and Searcy that campaigns against any tax increase is causing our city and county to fall behind. It's time we care enough about our city to support it!

I just hope we don't get a new fire station like we did the last one. That was so Embarrassing for the town of Searcy.

Since taxes are a percentage, they are already collecting more if we are spending more. If bread that used to cost $1 now costs $2, they are collecting twice the tax they used to.

You may feel that way now about the tax but do you realize that if Searcy doesn't keep the fire department up and cover all the town evenly then we will be downgraded and everyone's home owner insurance will go thru the roof.

DECREASE LOCAL TAXES
---Local taxes need to be decreased. We pay too much for what we get. Cut waste and re-allocate. There is enough money paid in by us but it is not being used advantageously.

if you truly believe this why don't you get your act together and run for city council so you can straighten it all out? Act, don't just sit back and complain!
