Panel recommends tax increase

As I said before, Columbus will have a tax increase on the ballot along with trash pickup increases, according the Dispatch.

Even though the chairman of the commission says that this is the “only option we have” and Council President Mike Mentel refers to this as “gut check time”, I disagree with both of them. We have been at gut check time in Columbus for the last few years, but political leaders have held off on making the decisions that will help the taxpayer.

Mentel says that there will be hearings on the tax increase that will give the people a chance to speak out on this. I plan on attending them, and I hope many Columbusites do the same. They need to hear from us.
