Tax Levy or 2% Raise?


Old Fire TruckThere really doesn’t seem to be much of an organized campaign to pass the 2 per cent Tax Levy on the November ballot.

Mayor O’Brien and Safety Service Director Franklin are leading whats called a “grass roots” campaign in support of this permanent tax and they will stress that it’s NOT a new tax, just a continuance of the existing tax.

Designed around its support for the Safety Services this issue does not have the emotional wind to succeed as it had when finally passed in special election 2004.

Since November election looks as tho it will be a light turnout, in Warren, that could work in it’s favor to pass but if many who are feeling the tight crunch on their wallets and feel this is a chance to give themselves a raise, then it will go down to defeat, “grass roots” or not.
