No, no, no, more tax bailouts. How much more as senior citizen's do you think we can keep affording on our fixed income to keep bailing the schools and the city out? First it's the power hikes, then home fuel hikes, gas prices, and now the Ogden airport and now the swimming pools of the Ogden schools.
We already pay $900 or more a year on our property taxes for schools and education. The majority of homeowners are probably senior citizens and I am sure the majority of do not use those pools.
It's been stated the cost will be cut back down in a few years to around $6 on average. I have never in my 69 years of life ever seen them raise our taxes then bring them back down. It just does not happen (now ain't that just a kick in the head). Close the pools----who really cares. Maybe Mr. Brad Smith, as seen in the picture posted in the paper. He looks sad because he won't have a place to relax and to swim free.
It is time for the citizens and the senior citizens to stop bailing for your poor spending habits of our tax money. My outlook of how those people think is: Who cares, it's the taxpayer's money.
Enough is enough. No, no, no to Mr. Smith and the pools. Shame on officials for always wanting us property owners to bail them out. As we are voters, I guess we can fix the problem in upcoming elections.
What if I couldn't pay my fuel bill or house payment? I could ask the school board or the city to help me, right? I don't think so.
