Not one comment in the entire article addressing WHY sales tax revenue is down. Maybe residents are facing budget shortfalls as well. Where is the discussion to tighten government belts or how and where to save. What can you get from beating a dead horse?
Implementing a use tax is admitting local consumers go elsewhere for major purchases. And why is that? Penalize those who buy elsewhere instead of being competitive. If the only difference in price of an exact same item were city sales tax there might be a point. However if you can go elsewhere and still save $5k on that same item a use tax will still be a savings. It will benefit our community coffers without contributing to local gouging. In today's cyber world shopping around is a given unless you don't care how much you pay.
I can see state and world news anywhere, local news is the only reason I subscribe. I receive 2 publications from out of state and both have local news for their area. Small town newspapers should have a healthy relationship with the entire local community. Not favoritism to certain views, but all sides of the facts. Just my opinion, am I alone in my thinking?
Sheesh, a little hard to follow....
Good for you, Michelle!
thank you for not only standing up for what you believe, but not backing down to negative comments from those who obviously form their opinions on what the media chooses to show them. You go girl!
the simpleness of the solution obviously escapes them...kudos to you
I hope someone will step up and answer your call....all of my out of state visitors have chosen SBS lodging for this year. Maybe you get what you pay for in Steamboat lodging instead of funding a nowhere blues mentality.
Speaking from the side of someone killed by a habitual offender, locking someone up doesn't necessarily rehabilitate. In our case the offender got out, got drunk, and drove again, taking my sisters life. He is out again and still drinking and driving. I pray he finds the help he needs.
I see a whole new future for the commissioners office!
