Everyone paying attention to the excellent job the Firefighters of the Eagle River Fire Protection District did with the two recent fires in Avon…knows we have a good Firefighting team. (Click Here)
After those fires the elected Board of the Eagle River Fire Protection District moved and approved their “request” for more paid Property Taxes from you the residents of the Fire District. The Boards vote – will put a new Tax question/proposed Property Tax increase on your upcoming November 6th 2012 Ballot – if you live in their District.
Wasting no time…the Firefighters Union started placing their “pro-tax-increase” signs in and around our Community. The sign below found recently on Rte. 6 in Eagle-Vail.
Look closely at their sign. Click on the photo to enlarge it. When the Fire District’s Proposed Property Tax increase failed in the November 2011 general election – the Ballot question was known as “5A”. Obviously somebody (the public sector union folks?) kept their campaign signs so they could be (obviously re-cycled) for this November 2012 election – another run at a Property Tax increase.
Make no mistake the ECT folks like our local Firefighters – it’s their public sector Union (Local 4245) that alarms the ECT.
Look no further than California to see what Public Sector Unions (et al) have done to some of the City’s economies in California. Some of those California Cities have since filed for Bankruptcy protection…(Click Here) Be aware.
More on this proposed Property Tax increase (Ballot question) in the near future.
