City seeks taxes, on ‘Davisville’

By From page A3 | February 19, 2014

The city of Davis, facing a $5 million yearly deficit and a backlog of deferred road repairs, has asked voters to boost the city sales tax by a half-cent per dollar starting this fall. Citywide votes on water rates and possibly a new city parcel tax are also in the works this year.

On the current edition of “Davisville,” Davis Vanguard blogger David Greenwald — who has written and commented extensively on the city’s finances — talks about how the city dug this hole for itself, the options, and where Davis might go from here.

“Davisville,” hosted by Bill Buchanan, airs on KDRT, 95.7 FM, at 5:30 p.m. Mondays, 8:30 a.m. Wednesdays and 7:30 a.m. Saturdays. The current show debuted Monday and will be broadcast through March 1. It is also available online at http://kdrt.org/node/13883.
