"Inevitable" East Ridge Tax Hike avoided

What happened? The citizens of East Ridge made it clear who is in charge and the public servants listened to the public. Isn't that how its supposed to work?

Why does the press always say "make up" a deficit??? Why not more accurately say "reduce spending"?


It appears property owners in East Ridge Tennessee will not be getting hit with a property tax hike as was expected.

Friday the city council held a budget workshop to try and figure out how the city will make up a $1-million budget deficit.
