Randolph township is having a referendum this Tuesday,Feb. 28th, to decide on whether to build a "tax free swimming pool". Actually, looks more like an aquatic center. Township of Randolph Community Pool (broken link)
While I'm inclined to vote Yes on this, I'm usually a skeptic about government proposed programs. I'm not a big believer in giving government more money to spend. The less taxes, the better.
That being said, I must say I have been impressed with the Randolph local government. I am afraid, though, that while it will be tax free for the first few years, what happens in, say, 20 years from now when there's a short fall?
I would like to hear from residents of the other towns listed below that have these "tax free swimming pools". Has your experience been good or bad? Pros and Cons?
