Any other Peoria area homeowners tired of hearing this? I'm soooo sick of hearing the term "raise property taxes". The city needs more money, "raise property taxes". The library wants to re-model and expand, "raise property taxes". The museum people want to build a boondoggle, "raise property taxes". The School Board wants more money, "raise property taxes". Sound like a friggin' mynah bird: AWCK! Raise Property Taxes. AWCK! Raise Property Taxes. Someone needs to teach that bird some new phrases.
AWHK! RE-DIRECT HRA TAXES!
AWHK! SELL THE GATEWAY BUILDING!
AWHK! SELL THE RIVERPLEX!
AWHK! SELL THE KELLAR BRANCH TO PIONEER!
AWHK! QUIT BUILDING ARBORS!
AWHK! CHAIN RESTAURANT TAX!
AWHK! READ THIS IDEA!
AWHK! BREAK THE LAW TAX! (got to help mynah out on this one. Add a 25% tax to all fines levvied for breaking a law - thusly a $100 running a red light ticket now costs $125)
AWHK! 25% BAIL TAX! (same theory as above)
AWHK! GIVE CHEF KEVIN'S MOM THE BUDGET AND A SUPPLY OF RED MARKERS!
AWHK! RAISE YOUR OWN DAMNED MONEY !!
Feel free to help the mynah learn some new phrases....
