It may be time for a strong dose of reality. The Danville City Commission is raising the payroll tax - again - and garbage collection fees.
Maybe the people of Boyle County don't mind having their garbage collection fees raised, but I am against the payroll tax increase. I don't live in Boyle County, but I do work in Danville. I don't get any benefit from a payroll tax increase. All I get is less money to take home.
I think it is time for the people of Boyle County to question the leadership of Boyle County. When was the last time that good paying jobs were brought into Boyle County? What are the leaders of Boyle County currently doing to bring new revenue into the county? Besides taking more money from all of us, what are the leaders of Boyle County doing to cut waste in the county? What have the leaders of Boyle County done to stop new revenue from coming into the county?
