I understand that the Library and the Metroparks levies (issue 40 and 4 respectively) are essential to our community and give them 110% support. However, I’m wondering how the Downtown Dayton Partnership, which is itself tax supported (through a Special Improvement District (SID) Tax) can be giving tax dollars to another tax-collecting authority.
Looking over the levy pre-election campaign finance reports- both received $1,500 from the DDP.
This isn’t really their job. And, was there a vote of the taxpayers (Downtown real estate owners)? What next- money to Issue 3? At some point, this has to stop.
