ROADS again?! Has anyone seen what they consider to be "resurfacing" of roads? They did my street and screwed the road up MORE and left a THICK film of dirt on our home and cars! More money for roads? No way! Fire apparatus, YES all the way! The city has trucks breaking down on the way to calls! It is horrid! Animal shelter! All the way!

These referendums total 10.9 million dollars. That seems like a lot of money. How much will it cost the average tax payer per year? And for how many years?

Yes: on the Animal shelter. No: on the road repair. What roads will be repaired? It is never mine. Yes: on Charter revision. No: on Canal Street. We cannot afford it.
