No money for your rink, Mr. Gunlock

From, let’s sneak a tax hike through the backdoor, to no, we can’t afford your dream Mr. Gunlock (of RG Properties) County Administrator Deb Feldman must have felt the heat after one public discussion on where to build an arena.

via County administrator opposes arena for Austin Pike.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that there will be a downtown arena either, but, at least we won’t be paying for more sprawl with a tax hike.
