Vote FOR the Impact Fees -- April 10

AFSCME Local 965 has endorsed the Road Impact Fees proposed by the Fayetteville City Council. We need safe roads as our community continues to grow, and the Road Impact Fee to be paid for by developers will help reduce the cost of sprawl. The alternatives to the impact fees are to shift the burden to citizens who are not causing the problem and making them pay higher regressive sales taxes on necessities or hiking up the property taxes on existing homes.

Someone has to pay for growth, and it should not all be dumped on working families. The developers should pay their fair share.

Early voting is already underway at the Washington County Courthouse, and the election is on Tuesday, April 10th at designated polling places in the City of Fayetteville.
