Fiscally Conservative in Fishers??
Looks like the town of Fishers is next on the chopping block for a 1% food and beverage tax increase. Seeing as I now work in Fishers in a restaurant, I'm looking at an approximate 14% increase in the amount that is taxed on a guest check, or a 33% increase since the beginning of the year, depending on how you want to look at it. All of this so Fishers can continue to have their what I consider "extras". Those include designer lightposts, over-sized administration buildings, and custom signage. Granted, some may say, well it's Fishers, they can afford to pay more. My question in return is, why should they have to pay extra when they're already being overtaxed in the first place??
