You're off your meds again!
"tptcolumbusway" is NOT Russ Colombo so your nonsense above is misdirected. Another example of your inability to do any "research" whatsoever. I've never met a person who has a 100% batting average of being WRONG! Someone should send your name into the Guiness Book of Records.
And as for your response to Bob Brown: has it occurred to you that Marco has a cap on spending (not on taxes) precisely because, without it, the citizens did not want to incorporate. They were afraid of out-of-control spending so they capped it. As a result, we had a cash surplus which has been blown by Moss and the past two councils in their ungodly rush to sewer the world before a new council could be elected to stop the madness.
Each year, the council took great pride in "reducing the tax rate." Sounds great but it's totally meaningless. As long as property values were rising (as they were until recently), it made no sense not to reduce the tax rate; the cap prevented the city from spending the money they already were raking in. So they "borrowed" against the kitty and when that ran out they "borrowed" from the bank. And now we're in the bottom of a hole (literally and figuratively) and, as the old adage goes: if you find yourself at the bottom of a hole, stop digging! (Literally and figuratively.)
