Middleton Files for Urban Renewal Status

THE GUARDIAN learned today the city of Middleton has filed to form an Urban Renewal District. This will be yet another effort to circumvent voters to spend money none of us have or wish to spend. The papers were filed on the 23rd of December 2008 at the Canyon County Courthouse.

The Middleton Urban Renewal District will remove virtually all of downtown Middleton from the tax rolls for all taxing entities and will raise your property taxes to fund their projects. The only question is how long they think it will take to realize any increased valuations to finance their shopping list of goodies.

This is just one more effort to circumvent property taxpayers rights to vote up or down public spending by elected officials.

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
