Our small community operates on a actually strict budget. I believe this because I am the Town Clerk plus Tax Collector. Every year we struggle to make ends meet because our residents refuse to vote to approve any sort of tax increase. The people I was with and I put it up each year for a vote plus all they do is complain. I wish for 1 moment they would kneel in on a planning meeting to see how hard it is to supply services while having no money to do so. This year, may be different! The people I was with and I sent a letter out letting the town residents believe that we would no longer be able to allow events at our local hall. It is owned plus operated by the local government so the residents have been able to use the facility for dances, parties, plus fundraisers in the past. The people I was with and I started getting calls once the letters were delivered plus when we said that we could no longer afford to heat plus cool the building people then understood our plight. Words spread hastily plus the current budget, with a small tax increase should go through without a problem. Then we can operate the Heating & A/C system plus things can go back to normal… Many people just take things appreciate heating plus cooling public buildings for granted. They don’t take into account the utility bills, service, plus replaces that are needed. They just believe that the government, local or otherwise, is strenuous them for no reason. This all changes hastily when you start taking away services that they are used to getting plus inform them that there is no money in the budget to provide them.
