Hotel-Motel tax increase

I was told that the Commissioners will hold a meeting on Wednesday to vote on the increase in the hotel-motel tax. I blogged about this, but was wondering if anyone else has heard it, or seen it in press....

It's not like there's any dissension on the board, anymore. We could just pay some corporation to make a rubber-stamp machine to plop "YES" on each and every tax-increase measure, fire all three Commissioners, and end up with the same result, cheaper. Of course, if we wanted things cheaper in the government, we would not have completely packed the LCCers with tax-and-spenders (TASers).

The great thing about imposing a tax like this is that it's difficult for such large entities like hotels to decide to move elsewhere. You can't move the hotel building, you can't move your employees (since low-paid service employees are immobile), and what's left isn't worth moving. Sweeeeet! Nothing like a captive audience, and that even more so if your performance sucks wad.

Constant 2-1 votes on the LCC board for financial suicide apparently not being good enough, Lucas County voters elected in another TASer to raise that to 3-0. The County only has itself to blame. Of course, the choice was predictably narrowed to a Democrat and a RINO, both of which are TASers and Unigov advocates. The degradation of Lucas County only proceeds apace.

The water agreement was such a 'done deal' that one commissioner actually SIGNED the document before realizing (actually being told, I believe) that the vote had to be taken.

Just goes to show how much of a 'given' their 2 to one mentality became.

If you're here to tell me it's my fault - you're right. I meant to do it. It was alot of fun. That's why I have this happy smile on my face.
