Time for a tax hike in Bartlett?

Bartlett (Shelby County) Mayor says

"In my personal view, people are not looking at us to cut services," Mayor Keith McDonald told members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen at a work session Tuesday night.

I certainly hope the Mayor will allow the taxpayers to express their "personal view." These types of articles almost NEVER give the reader historical perspective and show how much tax revenue has grown over recent years. Has Revenue gown as fast as population plus inflation? If so, why can't the city manage to cover costs? Lots of questions need to be answered for taxpayers.
