Crestwood citizen questions timing of city’s suit against fire district

To the editor:

The city of Crestwood is suing the Affton Fire Protection District over the soon-to-rise $500,000 it pays the fire protection district per year.

If city officials think they will win this lawsuit, why wasn’t this done back before voters approved the city’s 45-cent tax-rate increase, Proposition C, and the county sales-tax increase for police and public safety, Proposition P?

That amount would appear significant if removed from the yearly budget.
