Couple of things here - if you want to see where your tax dollars go, take a look at the budget. I went online and found out that almost all of our property tax dollars pay for police & fire. I guess other money comes from grants and sales tax. I looked but couldn't find anywhere in the budget that tax dollars went to the convention center, but I think the tourist tax paid for that. Bridges, Market Street, 3rd Street, by-passes, highways, all that stuff is state controlled.
