    I am thinking that we are long overdue for a tax increase and that some of that money needs to get our city employees a proper raise. They have worked for 3 years…doing more with less…with no pay increase, increases in the cost of benefits, and inflation creating an economic pay decrease.

    The House republicans have proposed a 2% pay increase for all state employees. We are in a place that values public service and govt. For the lack of a better word…its a liberal town. How can we not do better? The citizens of this town would support a tax increase to fund schools, teachers and our public servants.

    I think a lot of first responders are planning to be at the council meeting. Sounds great! Greater risk deserves greater pay.
