Re: “Council Members: Mayor 'Disrespected' Council on Beale Bucks

Ordinances equal laws that must be followed. Resolutions are requests that may be followed. Thus the differences in needing a constitutional majority (7 votes) or a simple majority of those present and voting. Also difference in public input time (3 readings for ordinances) where resolutions can be written and passed on the same night.

Re: “De-annexation Equals Chaos, Not Cure

@Arlingtonpop

As long as you are willing to pay the increase county taxes on principal. But the vast majority of these people had a choice when they settled in the area of knowing what the annexation reserve was at the time they settled. So that choice cuts both ways.

Re: “De-annexation Equals Chaos, Not Cure

Does the distinguishes gentleman from Lakeland realize that county taxes WILL go up too. And this it will be a tax increase on him as well. Same is true for Bartlett, Germantown, Collierville, Arlington, and Millington. At best it will be a wash for the de-annexed areas. Everyone else will get a tax increase. But I guess it's worth the price to "show Memphis".

Re: “Luttrell Tax Rate Passes With Help from Chism and Ford

Actually if values rise the tax rate DOES have to be recertified. Which was the original point of the law. Force governments to be transparent when prices were rising.

Re: “Letter from the Editor

Comments are a poor yard stick. If you ever examined comment streams with "high" numbers you would see that there are very few unique users, but the same people arguing back and forth the same arguments. A 500 comment article might contain 50 different commenters.

Re: “Political Peace, Not War

OTP, your rambling diatribe above proves you have no idea how the council operates. I award you no points. Have fun trolling.

Re: “Political Peace, Not War

OTP, please enlighten me as to where I can't swing a vote? Because, in Nashville you are right, but see your little treatise on home rule and get back to me...
