THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE

I am happy that the schools will get needed repairs. Its good to get needed street repairs and we need 24 hour law enforcement patrols and fire protection. Everybody benefits from this. But why is it only property owners who pay for all city and county services? I know this will never change but it isnt fair. Does rent go up every time a millage increase passes? Do businesses raise their prices? I think not.
It is easy for someone with no skin in the game to vote for a tax increase. When a property tax increase is on the ballot, why should those who dont pay property tax have a vote?
