Many residents continue to be upset over the subject of Measure W and the Civic Center and how things have been moving forward. Some of the concerns that have come our way include: Why is it that Measure W monies from the 1/2 cent sales tax is not kept in a separate coffer rather it is mixed in with the General Fund making long term financial accountability nearly impossible? Why does it feel like a bait and switch, that Measure W was to cover safety issues, when did the Civic Center become the main purpose? And why did they City work to pass this tax during an election they knew would not have a large turnout?
While we do not have the answers we do share what neighbors send us as that is our mission; to share news and views from local folks to local folks with the hope this information will if not answer the questions, at least give insight to what others are thinking as well. Below is the latest staff report sent to us by a concerned neighbor who has made it their mission to ‘follow the money’ and share with us what they can. If you have information to share please send to news@EverythingSouthCity.com
What is important to remember; whatever costs we incur today our children’s generation will be paying it off for a long time as costs continue to escalate for something taxpayers didn’t know they were voting for when they said yes to Measure W.
