We will take your longevity pay from you for only two years and then we will pay it back to you. Oh and just how are we going to do that in two years in one lump sum. Longevity is about 465,000.00 in the budget by two years what do you get $930,000.00 almost a million dollars to be paid out in one lump sum in two years. That will come out of the general fund. Just how is the city going to be able to do that? What makes the administration think that in two years we are going to have a million dollars to give out of the general fund. This is another case of just pushing it down the line. That is not what the city needs now we need real solutions long-lasting solutions that will put the city in a better position not put them in a weaker one. Many are saying that we are going to have a tax increase when act 345 hits come this tax season. That is coming from the contract for the police that the council voted no on and went to arbitration and the city lost. This is going to take effect come this tax season so watch you property taxes for it.. How long do you think it is going to be before the Mayor will be asking for a millage that will be next. So add the tax increase from act 345 a milliage that may be proposed by the Mayor, and in 2013 the city will drop 1 million from the general fund to pay back what ever they are going to take away for now.
