Vail Daily letter: Eagle County, how dare you?
Vail, CO, Colorado
I found it quite amazing to learn that Eagle County has cut its coffee budget from $28,000 to $14,000 due to the recession. The coffee budget in my little business is zero. We buy our own coffee.
How dare you use our tax dollars for coffee, or baby gifts, or birthday flowers and cakes?
No wonder you are contemplating a shortfall after the property tax revenues drop in a couple of years.
By the way, whatever happened to all that extra property tax money you got last year, and will get again this coming year?
Spent it all already on lattes from Starbuck’s, or perhaps on a big Christmas party to which the taxpayers are not invited?
