Forks Township Considering A Fire Tax

Lehigh Valley Live.com
Forks Township eyes possible fire tax to pay for fire trucks
"Supervisors discussed adding a specific fire tax that would designate money into a fund that could only be used for fire department needs."

A Tax Is Still A Tax
Wonder where all this could lead. Why not a separate swimming pool tax? Park maintenance tax? Snow plow/street cleaning tax? Municipal pensions tax? Street lighting tax? Police Tax? EMS tax? Municipal vehicles tax?

You get the idea. If we're going to starting breaking down budgets into dozens of separate additional taxes the list could be endless.
