    Sure, always raise fee and taxes before cutting spending to cover the other areas. I am glad I manage my money better than out local,state and federal govt.

    See also Ferguson, MO. These fines disproportionately affect lower income residents, who often can’t afford to pay, resulting in bench warrants, etc.

    There’s been a major wording error for at least the past 4 years in one of the codes.
