So maybe the City of Boise will allow the community to VOTE on this very important thing!

Let's be more like the Milwaukee Bucks and less like the Minnesota Vikings.

City of Boise - No new taxes and no increase in taxes? Can you guarantee that without shuffling and spinning numbers? Boise City has increased taxes at the statutorily allowed 3% per year, year over year. I have yet to read any City financial reports or watched any budget sessions where the City opts for NOT taking the 3% increase. If such exist, please provide an answer as to where I can view the proof that taxes have not increased in the past, and therefore will not increase in the future. Adding a $85-$103 million dollar project and saying this will not increase taxes is fooling yourself, but not the public. A "new" tax - if in the form of a levy - would actually be a postitive view point, as this would mean the citizens were fully included and voted in support for a project and the debt they will be obligated to pay.

More and more property taxes are diverted into CCDC by taking larger and larger swaths of our city as urban renewal districts. Values are rising regardless of URDs. What would our property tax bills look like with no URDs in place?

City of Boise - no new taxes? How will the $35 million in lease financing payments be paid? How will the parts being cut out now for “value engineering” be paid for in future years when they are added (events center, arts & history if cut)? What is the 5year estimate for increases to maintenance, operations, and personnel? What guarantee do we have that this project will not meet “unexpected cost overruns” like the recent bond-supported fire station? There is no reason not to give us a vote on a library bond. Let us vote!

I strolled through our beloved Library yesterday, and the Anne Frank Memorial. Gazed lovingly on the cabin the serenity of all that surrounds it. I did this is a memorial not only to those buildings but you myself as well to remember them as were before their demolished and forgotten.
