Maybe they should borrow some from the city. The City of Fairmont is now charging an additional $1.25/month for "city wide cleanup." Now, it's been a couple of weeks since I went to the City's website, but there was nothing on there about "city wide cleanup." I don't know how many paying households there are, but for argument's sake, let's just say if 8,000 houses in Fairmont pay the additional $1.25 per month THAT IS AN ADDITIONAL $10,000 PER MONTH WE ARE PAYING THE CITY. WHERE IS THAT MONEY GOING?

i think a higher tax should go to farmers and other businesses that use heavy equipment and semi's in our county.
