Two No On J Votes
Another tax request, again for city services. I cannot support this or any other begging from the city until they show that they can manage what they have already.
Need a start?
– End all city supported funding of the ineffective Chamber Of Commerce.
– Cut all ties with “ICLEI”, the Local Governments for Sustainability.
Think that this added tax will benefit the library only? Wrong. The city will be able to draw money away from the library to fund other things. Say forinstance, sustainable seagull repellent for the roof of city hall.
Monterey Hear-Old, 8/25
“It is a way to set the library up with a base outside of the city’s general fund,” Becklenberg said.
Passage of the measure, he said, could secure the future of the library and provide general fund savings of approximately $400,000 toward the $2 million city budget deficit, since Measure J funding would allow the city to use its regular library budget for other purposes until the budget can be balanced.
