Taxman cometh early

Dear Editor,

The city's annexation petition says they will start collecting sales taxes July 1. So here it is only April 1 and already they are collecting city sales taxes in the newly annexed area. If this is how they keep their promises, the newly annexed had better keep a sharp eye out! The city has made a lot of promises during this annexation process, from a promise to take over maintenance on all roads previously maintained by the borough, to a promise by most of the council to step down and run for re-election. Will they keep their promises?
