“Debt on the 6.8-mile beltway could be paid off as soon as 2015, but councilors are worried about what would happen after that debt is paid off.

Without voter approval to spend the funds on another project, the excess tax dollars would go back to city residents.”

It would be a BAD policy to actually return resident’s money to them?

As I’m not a city resident, I don’t have much say in the matter, but the 29 Road interchange isn’t a bad idea. It would cause growth in that area and be a boost to business. That being said, taxes should not be raised to pay for it. Why not save some money over the next few years to pay for it instead of borrow? The problem is that many people don’t have the discipline to save. If there is a dollar in the pocket—spend it. If you can get another piece of plastic—max it out. Unfortunately that is also what happens in government many times instead of actually cutting waste and inefficiency.
