Well, I tried the option for restricting replies to registered users. Are there that few registered users?

For the record, I generally oppose the concept of additional parcel taxes to deal with economic slumps. But the way forward seems so clear in this case.

I'm going to audit the Dublin district's finances, but need to figure out how to obtain the necessary information. Hopefully I can simply request it and maybe pay a modest retrieval fee, and not have to get into FOIA territory. My wife was miffed at the increase in our trash fees this year and started auditing the city government, and she got a lot of pushback requesting information about the city's finances, and what caused the fee increase.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
