Keizer parks funding

Keizer parks funding

To the Editor: Once again the city is considering raising additional funds for parks by adding a fee to citizens utility bills. This is the totally wrong way to increase funding for city services.

Because a reasonable amount of public safety is a constitutional guarantee, and because insurance is a matter of personal liability, it is mandatory that we have it. Also, people need to understand what […]
