Mayor Deb Higgins doesn’t see the point of raising taxes if residents can’t see the value of their tax dollars at work.
“For us to keep increasing taxes, my concern is that that’s inappropriate until we actually see some work being done,” she
said. “They need to see some work being done, they need to see some improvements in the city before I think we can go back
to them and ask for large tax hikes to dedicate strictly to infrastructure.”
She added the projects with money currently dedicated to infrastructure need to come to fruition before “we start getting
ahead of ourselves.”
