Lots of "special pots" of money being levied. To paraphrase an old saying, too many pots spoil the soup. "Did you pay your Arts Tax? Did you pay your leaf fee? Did you pay your street fee?" This is getting a little ridiculous.

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet
I will not pay it on the street,
I will not pay it on my seat,
I will not pay it with my heat,
I will not pay it on my feet!

I will not pay your new street fee!
I will not pay it, Novick, Steve!
If he want to be known as Steve "Taxman" Novick, that's his choice, I guess.
Thanks alot Dirk. I usually equate flogging a pole with a pretty good time. Now, I'm just gonna be reminded of bad government mismanagement, budgeting, etc. and grossly regressive taxes.
Gas tax... Anyone?
Wow, that was the best 3 consecutive posts EVAR here. I don't have a single smart ass retort.
So next year, the city council can divert more PBOT money to the streetcar or whatever other shiny object catches their eye and then claim they need to raise the street maintenance fee to cover the difference.
"In late March, PBOT paid $28,000 for a poll..." WHAT?

Please wait...
