Others should follow example set by Mehlville Fire Protection District

All utilities, governing agencies, school districts, trash, recycling, transportation, et cetera, want more money.

The transfer of retired bond-payment money to the tax rate on a permanent basis year after year is a tax increase.

Where are the citizens getting the money when they are seeking help themselves to exist? Live within your income. Cut out the frills.

The Mehlville Fire Protection District has shown financial restraint while improving the district. All others should follow suit.
