Since when did the chamber of commerce become a tax collector for their own projects that lines their pockets ! I our am appalled that our 'ellected' officials would even concider this, but they have been wined & dined a lot lately, and they are buisness owners too! They want us to pay over $60,000,00 over ten years for their wish list of projects. If they are such money making projects why not use their money! The 1% are always trying to get some one else to make them money. It seem our officials are starting to act like Washington polititons. We really need to watch them! I am not a lawyer, but this does not seem legal. I am sure they will put this on a separate ballot so only the special interest will vote as they always do.Tired of being lied to.
Read carefully,conference center,this is for local use.
The only thing that will stop the city council,is to take legal actions against them ,for misappropriation of funds (ambulance tax for one) blackmail (sewer rates vs annexation) camber of commerce tax (conflict of interest)most members belong to, or are affiliated to the camber.Manipulation of votes ( special votes set at known low turnout times) .Misrepresentaion,they want a conference center not a convention center(a convention center would cost $50-100 million)A conference center woud be usedfor chamber & city buisness.
