BFC doesn’t like the new JeffCo tax bill.

Posted by ALmod on August 13, 2009

Color me shocked.

It’s not exactly the way she wants it to be– shoved down everyone’s throat and/or at the same rate.  So of course she’s stamping her feet.

Whine & Gripe #1 – It’s not fast enough, and it doesn’t collect enough.

“The bill reduces the amount we collect,” she said. “It’s going to be a new tax. So that means it can’t go into effect immediately. There are certain ordinances that have to be drafted and adopted.”

It’s more than you were going to get and faster than you were going to get it.

Whine & Gripe #2 – The voters shouldn’t have a say.

Additionally, she said, the county might lose the tax entirely if voters rejected it in a referendum.

And it should if they do.  I’m sure that this whole attitude that the voters shouldn’t get to decide will go over well in the next election.
