TACOMA: Utility tax will impact many non-residents

Sure, Tacoma would like to pay for its road improvements with a 2 percent increase in the utility tax. They are well aware that 45.7 percent of TPU customers live outside of the city limits and including them would almost double their tax base. Isn’t this “taxation without representation” since only Tacoma residents will be able to vote on this tax?
