There will be a peaceful, limited and orderly “TEA Party OCCUPATION” of the Bandon City Hall. We are protesting the expansion of the Urban Renewal Agency’s debt limit from 5 million to 12 million and extending this debt all the way out to 2033.
Let’s send a clear message to our local politicians, to stop wasting the money of Coos County taxpayers. Tell the Bandon City Council about your outrage during the public comment portion at the next City Council Meeting.
There are 7 Urban Renewal Taxing Districts in Coos County. Those taxing districts siphon money from county general funds, schools, libraries, law enforcement, infrastructure, 4H, and hospitals.
It does not matter if you do not live in Bandon. If you pay property taxes in Coos County, then you are paying for The City of Bandon’s Urban Renewal Projects.
The Occupy Wall-Street movement is against banks and corporations receiving government “bail-outs,” well we are too. This new Urban Renewal project is the “Solyndra of the South Coast.”
Bandon City Council Meeting:
When: Mon, November 7, 7 pm – 9 pm
Where: City Council Chambers in Bandon City Hall
Notes: Please, be polite and respectful. Speak clearly and succinctly.
