Our sheriff was quoted as saying, "This was a true need. This was not a want. ... "A local resident had this to say:
"I’m against any more taxes. They’re taking every damn dime out of our pockets.”My guess is that when that resident experiences an emergency such as a fire, rowdy neighbors, a car accident or a heart attack, they'll be calling Ghost Busters? Uh, no. They'll call 911. They'll expect service.
There are many safety service levies in this area that passed. There are many that didn't. People vote against the levies, then complain that service is slow when they call for them in their time of need. STEP UP, PEOPLE! Things cost money. Cost of living has increased for you. Don't you think that there is a cost of operations increase for others?
