  1. I did say in an earlier comment when district C taxes were increased it wouldn’t be long before the other districts would have an increase. Here is the one for downtown. I am shocked by how elected officials here totally ignore what the people want or don’t want. Best town to retire. What a joke.

  2. I would like to see these new Expanded Geographical Boundaries Of The District. And also the extended city boundaries.
