District 2 Community Meeting hosted by Commissioner Ben Preston Tonight at 6pm @ Westside Park

District 2 Community Meeting hosted by Commissioner Ben Preston, tonight at 6pm at Westside Park.  All District 2 residents are urged to come out and find out what's going on in your City. 

Come find out about the Utility Tax, the new Crime Watch initiative that Commissioner Preston would like to start, the BSO/Fire Department merger, and other issues.  Also, bring all your questions and concerns to discuss with our new Commissioner.  

Keep in mind that this should not become a gripe session, but should be used as an opportunity to find out information relevant to our City.

I just hope that this will not be like the District 3 meeting, where the residents/attendees where prohibited from speaking from the floor until the designated period and all questions had to be submitted in writing beforehand. 

How can you dialogue like that?  The truth is, you can't!  What if residents develop questions during the presentations, of which I am sure one will be about the Utility Tax trying to disprove the information that was put out by Jean and her group.


Rescind Unfair Taxes will be making its presentation to the commission at the meeting Tuesday September 6 at 7 p.m. They will be asking for a vote to rescind the 10% utility tax. It is important that all be there to lend support to their effort.
