I would agree that taxation is not servitude as taxation does return services to the user. Roads, Police, etc.. Not just the crack of a whip. You may not agree to the lever of service, (or taxes), but you do get a return from paying taxes.

The city could wave the fees for Howleson hill, and police service and cut expenses for the concert series in more than what they cut their cash contribution.

The Idaho stop is the common name for a law that allows cyclists to treat a stop sign as a yield sign, and a red light as a stop sign.

Jerry, you do realize that you can ask Google anything?

Wrong guy, Jerry. I don't whine about bicyclists running stop signs. I support changing our city's laws to those in Idaho with regards to cyclists and stop signs.

Honestly, I thought Scottw had some good ideas about the police station, and that he would be a good person to serve on this committee, I apologize if my comments made anyone think anything else.

I keep myself plenty busy. I generally don't have issues with those that can and do show up to run things. If I did, I would show up, and participate, but really I don't enjoy long meetings, and long winded planning. They make me irritated, impatient, and antsy for action, so I generally avoid putting myself into this state of mind. I don't I think I could do better, why do I need to participate?

Bravo to you for doing your JOB better than most, but it was your job. I appreciate having you in this job, being proactive to understanding the needs of the community. I would love to have you back in the position, maybe then we could get a bike lane on US-40.

Scott, calling me ignorant didn't answer my question.

You have had a lot to say about this issue, and the public could use your knowledge on this committee. I guess from your side step, you are unwilling to sit on this committee, thus, while you may attend plenty of public meetings, your involvement will remain at this forum level. I read your posts and think you really care about how the money on this project will be spent, but unless I'm missing something, you don't care, you are just trolling. If you cared, you would STFU on this forum, and get in line to serve. At any time the Pilot could erase all your posts, and then the only REAL way to give input would be to serve on this committee.

So yes or no, are you going to serve on this committee, or remain a meeting attending, forum cowboy?
