Taxes on the table at tonight's council meeting

Normal Town Council Meeting tonight. Plans are in the works to raise property taxes. I’ll be speaking against the proposal. I encourage others to join me. In addition to the $88,000 a year committed for Zagster bikes, we had $500,000 for demolition of citizen-owned property on Beech Street, nearly a million to buy out and renovate Terri Ryburn’s privately held Pine Street filling station, $40,000 to build a canopy for the new Stout Chiropractic offices, and $67,000 to put in fiber optic links for Destihl–all private projects that were financed out of the general fund. The town just sold a house at a roughly $100,000 loss to the taxpayers and has others poised for similar sales. There is certainly room to tighten the budget and cover the additional pension amounts without levying new taxes. See you there! (If you can't make it, consider emailing the council and watch online.)
