The voters had a chance to vote for safety tax of 2 cents and one dollar for tax hike. That’s not high compared to what your property taxes are going to be, so don’t complain about it. The money has to come from somewhere.
I hear people say Belleville is not worth living here. Go somewhere else you’re fine about. This town is a wonderful place to live. Police are everywhere, even in my area. They are on the job, not drinking coffee. Support your police officers; they have a dangerous job. Their families worry about them too. So don’t blame the mayor about everything. Get out and help the police see what’s going on.
