TACOMA: Metro Parks bond costs too high

Letter by John Scott, Tacoma on April 7, 2014 at 2:35 pm with No Comments »

There are two large issues with the late April Metro Parks bond issue proposal. First, if approved, the new assessment would be a 50 percent tax increase from the current Parks levy.

The second issue is that Metro Parks currently covers 86 percent of the medical premium costs for employees. This is not a reasonable or sustainable expense for the taxpayers to support long term.

I suggest the voters ask themselves the question, “Do I want to pay this increased tax assessment for the next 28 years?”
