If you are a vile Grinch (or perhaps Tim Eyman) then the Tacoma municipal budget may be giving you everything you want this Christmas, such as:
No more fire stations for Proctor and the Tide Flats. Don’t worry, everything there was either old or flammable anyway.
No more school resource officers. No problem – just hang a few “No bullying” signs.
No more fire boats. Heck, if the fire’s on the water then it’s not really a problem (let’s just overlook all the chemicals and HAZMAT at the port, though).
No more gang unit. Well, they’ll just have to behave …
