C.V. Incorporation Will Bring Deficit, Development

Monterey Herald -- Sept. 20, 2009

For most of us hindsight is 20/20, and with the November ballot fast approaching understanding the facts about incorporation are very important.

Nationally we are in a recession and slowly recovering. Local businesses are finding times daunting (i.e., Quail Lodge), and countywide, cities are struggling to produce a positive budget. LAFCO's report states the town would be operating at a deficit in year six. Where will this town find the funds to fill the coffers once the surplus generated in the first five years is exhausted? My guess is by making a deal with the (devil) developers!

Aren't these the very people we all want to avoid? Whether we like it or not, incorporation is a losing proposition. Look at the report, draw your own conclusions; the town can not operate with two part-time public employees and a budget, in relative terms, smaller than the city of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Don't let the incorporation folks scare you into voting yes. They will need all the development the master plan provides to operate the new town. Preserve our quality of life and let's not have to use our hindsight after the November ballot.
