Ketchikan needs a reality check. The only thing raising our taxes is our debt load and our debt load is largely driven by bond issues, and our bond issues are approved by you. So when higher taxes and layoffs occur it is the voters of this town who took your job.
Who's going to pay these higher taxes if a bunch of us lose our jobs? When you guys make these decision (council or assembly) there is a long term effect that must always be considered.
Voters please think before you decide we need a bunch of new buildings, when you vote on things. I agree it would be nice to have all new stuff but that is not reality .
Sorry couldn't help myself.
