Tax Increase for Parks is a Bad Idea

The Sacramento Bee continues to tout this as the solution to County Park’s problems, in the Sunday editorial and an article from Saturday.

Fortunately, the County Board of Supervisors has turned one park over to a forprofit—Gibson Ranch—and another facility over to a nonprofit—Effie Yeaw Nature Center—both of which were excellent strategic ideas.

We hope they will therefore look askew at asking residents to increase taxes during such horrible economic times without exploring more innovative strategies instead.
