Milano tax levy leaves questions unanswered

Dear editor,

I find it strange that a public hearing was not held concerning the February budget approval and the new city tax for Milano.

It seems as if the city council and mayor may have their own agenda, and they are not able to answer, or refuse to answer, legitimate questions about where all of the tax payers’ money will be going.

When asked by someone about lack of a public hearing on this at the latest special called meeting, the mayor would not answer the question.

We still have dirt roads within the city limits and two of them are used everyday for school traffic.

They are not taken care of regularly as they should be, and it’s a shame that this city cannot, or will not, get priorities straight.

Why has the city not paved these roads? They are city roads, not school roads, and the other roads around them are paved.

These two roads are used by all of the school traffic, including the buses. If certain individuals in the area had to travel these roads daily, they would get paved.

I am not totally against taxes here, but why is this suddenly so important, and why can’t we get straight answers about how the money will be spent?

A concerned citizen of Milano,
