Every time I'm asked to contribute more towards the expense of a growing community, I immediately wonder why I rarely hear mention of the developers’ share of this expense and the topic of better deals being negotiated with developers to also contribute more.
There's development happening everywhere.
I'd also suggest we dig deeper regarding the cost, value and urgency of capital projects with the intent to work with a leaner budget. There's always room for improvement when it comes to managing taxpayers’ money. There are a growing number of hard-working people who cannot and should not have to continue to meet increased expenses at this rate.
