The November ballot asks us to vote on two financial measures one is a middle income housing program, price tag 15 million dollars , no tax increase. The other is a 45.5 million dollar debt with a pay off not to exceed 72+ million for a sporting facility with a tax increase earmarked for construction and operation and maintenance so one can presume the tax would be forever.

Our choice, what do we want to spend on and how much?

We will decide in Nov.. Perhaps if the figures were reversed the choice might be both.
