Apparently the Fig Garden Police Protection District is no longer willing or able to finance its undemocratic private police force. In the current election, the district hopes to rope us into its orbit, at $299 a pop. For my household, that's a 60% increase in property taxes. There are about 512 households involved in the election.
For what? I am well-satisfied with the sheriff's current service.
If the Fig Garden Police Protection District needs more protection, perhaps it should contact Blackwater in Iraq.
