… but am I correct that the City Council agreed to forgive $305,000 in overpayments to retirees, then agreed to a 2.82 percent tax levy increase?
Yes, these folks are on fixed incomes, etc., but how have I become responsible for this clerical error? I wouldn’t care if each of these retirees had a 30-year, 0 percent loan payable only from their estate after their death (because they are on fixed incomes now and can’t afford repayment now…), enacting these two initiatives at the same meeting tells me that this clerical error is somehow my responsibility.
Sigh. The vote was unanimous, so I must be missing something.
