Mr. Mayor, my heart just skipped a beat.

When a Mayor talks like this, I get all fluttery inside. He is actually talking about "opportunity cost", thats pretty sophisticated stuff. He is actually talking about the taxpayer's money as if the taxpayer might have a better use for it. He is telling us that he believes taxpayers actually have a brain and might decide that more government is not the best way to spend their money.

YES, this elected official GETS IT!!

Getting more space without building a $5 million city hall is what we're working on. The key is always not to put the burden on taxpayers when you're working on projects. Any kind of project you can do if you're willing to raise property taxes, but the citizens of La Vergne would rather keep that money in their pocket and let the officials figure out another way of doing it. This board has been excellent about that. I'm very proud of the elected officials we have.
