Thought of the Day

For over 30 years Lisbon has been trying to attract business in an effort to  increase our tax base. This effort hasn't worked.

Maybe its time for us to bring spending back in line with other towns our size.  Cutting our spending is something we can and must do if we want lower taxes.

Have you ever noticed that the taxes gained from a large commercial tax base seldom justifies the increase in infrastructure necessary to maintain the businesses.
