Alright children, you've had your fun

The Fairbanks City Council is playing daddy. The voters had their fun in October, passing initiatives that slashed property taxes and put off consideration of a sales tax, but now someone actually needs to fill that gaping hole in the budget.

It seems like the City Council has made a good faith effort to do so but no one really seems to like all the new taxes they're proposing to fill the whole. What a surprise! So now the City Council is asking the voters to reconsider the whole slashing property taxes idea.

Sigh... see what happens when we let voters run wild?
