A Sunny Disposition

A local committee has been organized by the local city council and has issued their recommendations on what should be done if we do not vote to pass a sales tax increase in the City.

These recommendations include cutting around 340 police and firefighter jobs, which we already saved when we passed proposition 100 in April of this year, cutting City Departments by about 15%, except for some of the more important Departments, like Planning and Development Services, Equal Opportunity, Parks and Recreation, and Human Resources, which are only to be cut 9% to 13%.

Oh, and one the most vital recipients of money that we support with our taxes on everything we purchase in the City Limits will not be cut at all.

Since it sustains the lifeblood of the city, protects us from danger and evil, helps us when we are down, improves the quality of all our lives, Sun Tran is to enjoy immunity from the recommended cuts.
