If the politicians can specify any tax bill amount they wish, with no fear of retribution, why bother having millage elections? In fact, why have any elections at all?
This is just another example of the growing totalitarian mindset of local and national politicians.
The people responsible for this grotesque affront to our liberty should at least have been charged with a criminal offense (larceny comes to mind) and, when found guilty (as they obviously were), thrown in prison for life.
They deliberately betrayed the public trust and should be treated as enemies of the people.
