Lake County Council, make a final decision that there will not be a county tax in Lake County. We are overtaxed and get nothing in return.
Mark Dvorscak is right; we do not need a county tax. Who will get this money? Not the residents of Lake County, but Indianapolis and other counties will benefit.
Allen K. Hoppel, we do not need to trade a free Cline Avenue Bridge, because once the tax is put in place it will just increase from 1 percent to 3 or 4 percent. Remember the state was offering $100 million to upgrade the Indianapolis Speedway, which is owned by a private corporation. To the people running our state government, a speedway is more important than a bridge for people to drive across to get to work.
If the state cannot help us, then we have nothing to give to the state. Remember governor and legislators, life is a two-way street.
