Owensboro Residents Facing Needed Tax Increase [VIDEO]

Cuts in community programs have already been announced and now Mayor Tom Watson says there’s really no way around a tax increase for Owensboro residents. Brad Byrd sat down with Mayor Watson to discuss our future.

Last night on Eyewitness News Brad Byrd had the chance to ask Owensboro Mayor Tom Watson some tough questions about the financial future of Owensboro. With all of the amazing projects that have been completed downtown and throughout the community it was inevitable a strain would be put on the city financially. We just didn’t know how long it would take before residents would “pay the price”. Based on the interview on tristatehomepage.com, the time has come. Mayor Watson said all of the projects have to be paid for and the only way it can be done is with increased taxes. That’s why I think it’s important to take advantage of all the exciting things that Owensboro offers families in the community because ultimately, we’ll all be paying for it!
