Council Sends 9M Bond to Voters
We have to vote “yes.” If we don’t borrow this now at current rates, then the city’s credit rating will slide off a cliff. Nobody likes taxes, but life is expensive. Pay a little now, or pay a lot later. There are no other alternatives.
Bear in mind our aquaducts need replacing. In August a sewer structure from 1879 collapsed under Main Street. Burlington is not a new city, by North American standards.
