Of course... if most of the voters are property owners who get all bent over the portion of their property tax that goes to fire services, then you'll get your way. If the majority of voters are not so inclined to go ballistic over such penny ante stuff, then you will have the happy opportunity to learn to accept what you cannot change. What's not to like about that? Hum?
I take it you haven't read the whole thread.
Perhaps you'd like to send in my $500 additional tax? You'll receive the same value as me for it.
