Oh come on!

With the economy the way it is today, the County just laid off employees AND had a mandatory furlough (in other words, PAYCUT), and state employees are going through the same thing. If anyone actually went online and read the city's budget, you'll see that there is a 99% chance that the WPD will be receiving stimulus funding to supplant those vacant positions. The convention center is a non-issue, since none of the funding for that comes from property taxes. Somehow the city balanced their budget without layoffs, paycuts, furloughs, OR raising taxes. I don't know about you, but I can wait a year to have my road paved. It looks to me like at least one of our local governmental bodies was a little prepared for this crisis. I guess it's hard for me to understand how a city employee could be upset when their pay hasn't been cut, they all are working and it looks like they will be getting raises next year. Talk to one of those county employees who recently got laid off.
