We have all read about the flap that the city of Tracy was passing a fee for calling 9-1-1. But our city manager explained that was not the case — he explained there will be a new fee for medical services from the Tracy Fire Department. But do not be surprised that the city will try to pass such a fee in the future to punish us for our property values declining and declining sales tax revenue.
We all wonder why was this fee imposed on us like a punishment because the tax base has run dry. And why are we paying twice for this — don’t we pay for this in our current property taxes?
Our current City Council has become so arrogant, so out-of-touch with reality, and blames the taxpayers for the budget crisis. So let’s remember in November and remove all the members of the council that voted for this insanity.
Let us not replace them with people from the building and home trades or someone who sits on the board of our local hospital.
In November, voice your outrage about this fee and vote out the current City Council — let’s get real human beings into those jobs who have intelligence, compassion and know how to manage a budget for the citizens of Tracy.
