With unemployment at 11.1 percent and economic conditions adversely affecting all citizens, especially the poor and middle class, it is unconscionable that County Council would allow this process to even get off the ground, The Capital Projects Commission did what they were asked to do; but they should never have been asked in the first place. If either of the projects proposed to be funded by this tax increase had been deemed “essential”, then it should have been planned for, approved by the appropriate Council or Board, and included in that entity’s regular budget.
