For tax refund helps locals

I agree with Mike Maple about the food tax refund. It has not changed in 20 years and should probably at least double. Who cares what it costs to administer. It will cost the same regardless of any increase. Mayor Steve Skadron, how dare you not support this. Throw a bone to the people who make this town run. With the amount of money this town spends on everything else it is a slap in the face of locals that this increase is being debated. Come on city council. Show us locals that you actually care about us.
