To All COLA LO Members,
This week a local blogger claims that the "scam wagons" are circling around Lake Oswego once again his comment is related to the Foothills development.
The blog Post Recircling the Scam Wagons says that taxpayers funds are safe for the moment but implies they are in jeopardy over the long term. One online comment may have been even more critical of the effort and is quoted as saying:
Don't be surprised by proposing a Local Improvement District (LID) that is even more extensive to cover the fed/state streetcar money losses. It could extend even pass the downtown and the First Addition neighborhood, and farther to the west into other neighborhoods. You could say "East meets West". How would you like another $450 dollars a year tacked onto your home or small business property taxes?
Of course, they'll still talk urban renewal too to steal money from schools, police, fire and parks.
All of this comes at a time when citizens seem to be very concerned about basic needs including streets and schools.
