St. Marys Councilor DeLoughy explains budget shortfall; defends millage incease.*

* The proposed millage is actually the same as this year's, but is a de facto increase for all who have had an increase in the appraised value of their real property. The revenue-neutral "rollback" rate would have been 5.1 mills. The rate actually needed to cover budget is 6.1 mills.

Blah blah blah, they're raising taxes. End of discussion.

Is this DeLoughys round-about way of saying he does not have the balls to do what needs to be done in St.Marys. If so, he further emphasizes the fact that he has contributed greatly to the problem during his tenure as City Councilman.

Jay you are absolutely correct in the facts stated about the millage rate. Surely Deloughy realizes this also, but obviously believe the taxpayers are to dense to see the truth.

I was wondering the same thing. Why is there a difference between what is on the books and what is billed. Why not tie the tax collection directly to the tax digest?

Obviously, the last two commentors understood each other completely.
I, on the other hand, am not sure that I understood either one of you. Could one or both of you help me out?
