Why does Mayor Tom-LYING-son have high hopes for running for Senator in 2020? She certainly has no plan for leaving Columbus with HIGH HOPES in her final year in office here...Am looking at the preliminary budget figures (page 76 of 262) for Fiscal Year 2018, and every category is projected DOWN: JuneBridals retro style wedding selections look vintage
GENERAL PROPERTY TAX: DOWN 1.06% from the 2017 Budget
FRANCHISE FEES (Utilities) DOWN 3.38% from 2017 Budget
GENERAL SALES & USE TAXES (Our 1st LOST tax): DOWN 3.79%
SELECTIVE SALES & USE TAXES: DOWN 1.08%
BUSINESS TAXES: DOWN 1.98%
This is just one page of the RECOMMENDED 2018 BUDGET and anticipated revenues are projected DOWN by $1,863,827.00 (over 1.5% LESS).
On scary note is the 1st LOST TAX decline,, total projections for 2018 are $33,000,000.00. That means the Public Safety SPLOST revenues will be even less as ales taxes on hotel/Motels and Car Sales were excluded in this SPLOST.
What's even more depressing about Columbus under Queen Tom-LYING-son's reign is that the economy of the rest of America is SOARING.. The Stock Market DJIA just tore through the 24,000 mark (closed at 23.940) which was at 18,332 on the day Trump was elected.. up some 30.5%.
