of a scam...having to be DOUBLE TAXED when you get drug into the city limits...NOW THAT is a scam! That is the one reason I don't want to have ANYTHING to do with getting drug into the city. My fraking taxes doubling!
If you live within 5 miles of the existing lines, its time for you to wake up and realize that your coming in. You cant freeload forever. You use City services and infrastructure daily so it's high time you paid for it. Outside 5 miles ,,,,you may have an arguement. No scam here.
It's called a convention center, and now talks of annexing Monkey Junction. Tax and spend while handing the country over to Illegal Aliens at our expense. That's the bigger scam.
