Here’s The Scoop …….. Five Percent FEE-asco……

5% INCREASE IN ONLY 6 MONTHS!….

Dear Readers…an observant reader gave this writer the heads-up on one factor of the the $21 Parking Permit (prev. post)…While the price is still wrong for residential…the cost increase is 5%…. in less than 1 year…

On the Town website under Tennis…(see below)…the increase of 5% began Oct. 2009…. 6 months after approval!…

Did the Commission realize this when they passed it ?….

This writer missed it…..Thought 5% would be Oct. 1, 2010!….OUCH!…

The cost of living is 1.8%…We not only gave the Town employees 2.5%….and the “Volunteer” Fire Department  4%…..Now all fees went up 5% in record time!…

The CIC- endorsed candidates are going to run on keeping taxes low……Voters need to look at what’s behind the “FOG” (Friends of Gang) headlines!….
