TODAY — All We Want for Christmas is PILOT Payments!
We continue to support the PILOT Action Group in their efforts to push the city and our wealthiest nonprofit neighbors to reform our Payment in Lieu of Taxes program, which over the last seven years has left over $77 million uncollected for our schools, housing, roads. A great group of parents and students from St. Stephens are organizing a fun event delivering petition signatures at City Hall on Tuesday, December 18 at 3 PM. RSVP and share on Facebook and add your name to the petition!
