How is this scum sucking Union doing this? I'm President of my local and know it is beyond their power. You are being asked by the Board of Commissioners made up of Fire District residents, not the evil union to have a tax increase. These guys are the ones in charge of the money. Not the Fire Dept, and certainly not the union.
If the Union is asking the board for the increase they can easily say no. If the trustees or commissioners think the increase is worth it to the people they can move foreword.
Unless they are already collecting less than their taxable levy it will have to go to referendum.Good luck trying to pass a tax increase in this economy. It will go over like a lead balloon.
Keep your guns stashed and your powder dry.
