Franchise fee's to pave the way for a new era of spending
A Four to Six vote ended discussions on July 14th. This vote will continue to push us closer to more hidden taxes and less government oversight. By choosing to fund the roads with a franchise fee instead of using a line item in the budget or special assessments, the Ramsey City Council has set a precedence in how future projects will be paid for.
Debra Musgrove and Dan Specht voted against the measure with the rest of the City Council and the Mayor voting for it.
