I don't think Huntington deserves any new tax money till they start spending what they already have more wisely. The roads are worse than the ones in Baghdad.

Seems to me Huntington has its residents by the balls. So lets recap, if u live in Huntington u now pay the municipal fee every 3 months which they jack up $50 for one time only. Then if u also work in Huntington u pay the $3 user fee each week. Now if you also shop in Huntington you are charged 1% municipal tax. But wait there is more, if the occupational tax makes it out of the court system u won't have to pay the $3 a week but instead a 1% payroll tax which if you make more than $300 a week will be more than the old $3 fee. Confused yet because I am. Yet the mayor took a pay raise and added a personal assistant right out of the gate. Down home politics at its best. Stand up and vote these crooks out of office including the council because they approved all of these taxes

I'm not saying Felinton was great, but I'm still waiting to see how Wolfe is soooo much better. Maybe better at finding new ways to suck money out of us?
