The Red Oak Council reduced the tax rate a whopping 1/2 cent this week.
According to Casey Hargrove, the budget is balanced as well. These are some positive steps in getting city government moving in a positive direction. Funny how Ken Pfiefer said the same thing but we found out we were 600K in the hole. I'm not beating that horse but wasn't he working with the same budgetary figures or was he just confused/covering his backside?
Good Job Council! Now reduce our taxes in a more significant way by bringing in real business to offset the huge tax burden shouldered by homeowners in this town. That's the task of the new mayor...to marshall the forces necessary to get this done. My question is still who is the person to get this done? Guess we'll find out in a month right?
