While we're going "tax crazy" here's an idea. How about a tax on ridiculously expensive unnecessary rotary construction projects. a 5% tax on the central park project alone would generate roughly 85 thousand. The money could go towards treatment programs for people with overbearing senses of entitlement. Just a thought...

How about using one of the golf cart type shuttles that they have at the big amusement parks (since we're on our way towards becoming a giant amusement park anyway....but I digress). You could attach a trailer to the fancy golf cart that Main street employees use to get arround in and shuttle people from our "satellite parking lot???" to various locations downtown. You could decorate it to look like a hayride or some western theme. Just an idea.

I'll let you know when I'm done building my anti-drone drone. Its going to be a remote control ground vehicle with a big catapult that launches a weighted net.Should get the deal done without getting anyone arrested. I may decorate it Mad Max style just for fun. Cheers!

tom bedell 7 months, 2 weeks ago on Eric Meyer: Keep your trail systems

Hi Eric, is it possible to use a portion of the accommodation tax for ongoing trail maintenance? For instance include trail maintenance for a specific period (say 5 years) as part of the initial bidding process. The percentage of the bid for maintenance could be set aside and used for general trail work as needed in the future. Just an idea.... Cheers!

Shoot, if they wanted me (the blight) to go away they just shoulda asked. Heck I'm even cheap, a few hundred g's and I'll quietly leave town..

I'm glad that someone's putting some thought into long term maintenance for these new projects. Thanks to the individuals involved for their foresight. A common solution for pro-trail builders is to incorporate maintenance costs into the project start up costs....i.e. If the Morning Gloria trail cost 164,000.00 to build you would take 10% or roughly 16,000.00 and set it aside for long term maintenance.

Really glad to hear there were no injuries. I don't know anything about this young man except what I read in the article. That being said, provided he doesn't pose a flight risk why not put an orange jumpsuit and a radio collar on him and put him to work with a shovel right now. Better than sitting arround in jail and it would give him a chance to show if he's willing to atone for his crime.
