Discussion of the cell phone tax was tabled at the City Council tonight. I was asked tonight what I thought the nearly empty gallery in Council Chambers meant. “I don’t know what it means.” But the Council is scheduled to discuss implementing a cell phone tax at the May 26th “Work Session. I hope the gallery is full. I’ve said here that I favor implementing the cell phone tax. I’ve also said, “The urgency and need to manage our spending remains.”
I would love to hear from people regarding the cell phone tax. We do need a larger conversation about city revenue. Call me, my phone number is listed on the City’s web site here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.
