Does anyone know with all these new houses being built and ones being lifted and renovated. Where is all this extra money going? It cost me $3000 for a permit to rebuild my house. Times that by hundreds of people.

Atttn Tim and JV. The budget passed by a landslide.

Misty. 67% not really a landslide. Only 2300 voters even turned out. It is a sad state of affairs when roughly 1600 people decide the tax hike for the rest of us. I am disappointed to say the least.

Potato, potato. landslide, not landslide. Who cares, Timmy? It passed. Now - everyone line up to get your big raises - NOT! It's for the kids; not the employees.
