Swanton Reader Says Tax Just “Passing The Hat”
I read in this week’s paper on the front page, the article about the proposed increase in city sales tax. Also, your article on page four about it.
I have mixed feelings on this. I live about 18 miles north of Fairbury. I am close to do business with Scherbarth’s, Walmart, Orschelns, Maatsch’s, Countryside Vet, Stanton, and other places when we need something. I see Fairbury’s need for the money to repair streets, etc. Currently we are updating a project on the farm, as we need to repair, update, and maintain equipment, etc. What good would it do me to come to Fairbury and pass the hat asking for $ help?
Thank you for listing to me.
