[quote]SG has said publicly for many months that the constitutional office funding would likely change in response. [/quote]It was never going to happen anyway. As I said, only a fool would think it was. Additional annexations are coming. What else in the SG expense budget will no longer be belie...

[quote]That said, there is one glaring error/assumption in that article. There is no way SG will agree to continue funding 100% of the constitutional offices (17 million per year ) that they do now. Even paying 50% makes u[/quote] WTF? There is no mention of the issue of paying for constitutional ...

What about the majority of households which don't have children? And businesses which pay the biggest share of property taxes? No wonder the Mall and other businesses didn't want to be in St George. Twenty mills plus of additional property taxes on 50% higher assessed real estate over reside...

[quote]These are the same two groups who released a study earlier in the year claiming St. George would have so much money that it would bankrupt the entire parish if formed. [/quote]That's a lie. Pure and simple. The study by Dr. Richardson did not say the parish would go bankrupt if SG was inc...

re: CPA firm's analysis shows higher taxes needed to support St George City - LSURussian
I'm with Asgard, you can't be taken seriously. You think the Mall of Louisiana, the new casino, Costco, Celtic Studios and that residential subdivision that was recently annexed don't pay taxes. And you think the BRAF and Chamber of Commerce are government agencies. And somehow the unfun...

[quote]How many St George supporters would happily pay that tax though? [/quote]I guess we'll find out when the election is held. But you have to remember the SG organizers have been telling the people who signed the incorporation petition that no new taxes are expected to be needed for either th...

[quote]Yes, and I believe they paid for the results that they wanted so I question the integrity of that CPA firm.[/quote]Okay. So who would you want to pay for an "independent" study? Maybe you? You wouldn't be questioning the "integrity of the CPA firm" if you had ever had any business dealin...

[quote] I believe the Baton Rouge Area Chamber and the Baton Rouge Area Foundation are looking out for their own self interests and can not issue an unbiased report on this issue.[/quote]They didn't issue the study.

[quote] 700.00 - 1000.00 more would't be a deal breaker for me.

I think I understand what you're getting at and I'm pretty sure you misunderstand how the $30/person was arrived at.

[quote]To be fair that's because we already pay EBRSO a separate property tax that is independent of city/parish taxes. One would hope that if EBRSO cut its' patrol presence in half that we could lower the EBRSO taxes for the entire parish. Not by half because they do other things parish-wide but st...
