Services Not Rendered

January 10, 2002

"New 'Alimony' Figure Is Inflated, Secessionists Say" (Jan. 5) states again why the Valley wants to and should secede. We pay $20 million annually in taxes more than we receive in services from the city. This is abundantly clear when you try to get a police car to respond to a crime. I have not seen a street sweeper in the West Valley for months. Have they all gone downtown? Have you ever tried to call downtown for any service? Be prepared to be on hold as they switch you from one department to another.

The downtown interests are gearing up to defeat this split. You can understand why. No one wants to lose $20 million.
