I WAS here when the police referendum was held. As far as residents voting at the polls, the cops lost. The vote was carried by absentees, snowbirds who were promised extra security at no additional cost. The annual police budget then was 1/3 of what it is today. Many of the former absentees are now permanent residents or moved on before things soured in recent years. I seriously doubt if a vote of confidence today would yield the same results. Same goes for City incorporation. I believe the REAL purpose of running-up nearly $300 million in public debt was so the local government could never be dismantled without settling-up with the creditors first, and that ain't never, ever gonna happen.
