Is City Hall wasting millions?

I'm going to go with 'yes'.

My favorite part of the article:

City officials say "they have been unable to do so stating there are 'problems with DMV records,'" the task force report said. "Sources at the DMV report that there are and have been chronic problems with Richmond's record keeping."

I'm going to have to go with DMV on this one. I got a tax bill for my cars this year from the City, even though I've lived in Henrico for three years and DMV definitely knows this. Who has the faulty records?

I think that the delay is mostly due to the income level of the people that live in the area. You can bet your ass that if River Road had washed out that it would have been fixed pretty quickly.

You know, it's kind of funny how I totally support the "you get what you pay for" theory in a free market, yet I get really pissed off at preferential treatment by the government for people who pay higher taxes.

I guess it's because the whole tax system is supposed to even out the quality of infrastructure things like roads, schools, and police. I hate it when they say that taxes are to be used for the good of all, but then they spend more money in certain areas. Hypocrisy sucks.

Yeah, you're probably right.
