Enough is enough. The fair city of University Place is already alarmingly deep in debt (almost $50 million). To add insult to injury, it also has the highest urban property tax rate in all of Pierce County.
Now, believe it or not, Proposition 1 on the April 26 ballot would cost more money and increase property taxes. Why? For more recreation.
Until University Place gets a better handle on its finances, her fun-loving citizens should be more responsible for their own recreation and not expect all of the other beleaguered taxpayers to pay for it.
Even the most ardent Federalists among America’s founding fathers - such as Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison - would be appalled at our modern government’s reckless overspending, whether it be on the federal, state, or local level.
