Can we use some of the money to attract more restaurants to town? I like the ones we have, but something different would be nice. El Matate just isn’t doing it anymore. Bring in Applebee’s, TGI Fridays…I would settle for a Culvers!

I fully support this tax because i think all 4 of the projects it will fund are very important to our community. However, I really wish there would have been an end date specified. Saying that the tax is done when the projects are done is too vague for me, some of these projects could drag on for many, many years to come.

No end date… Enough said. It will never go away and you supporters of this tax will learn that. Another reason I could not support it is because of the exempt status of the local (CITY OWNED)liquor store. Give me a break. Lakes corner liquor or ANY liquor store outside of the city limits is where I will take my business. JM, this city is anti growth, unless it involves anexation of every home from here to Audubon or Frazee. Those type of business will look at this and say no way.

The profits from the (CITY OWNED) liquor store goes back to the city anyways. Why is it a big deal that they don’t have to pay this tax? Their prices are high enough. Would you rather pay another 1% on top of that? I don’t follow your logic on this. Its not like its a private business that is exempt.
