Dear fellow tax hikers, an outside expert has concluded that the costs to renovate Union Terminal and Music Hall have increased $10.7 million. Last month the legendary Cultural Facilities Task Force, led by PR expert Bob McDonald, claimed project costs would be $331.7 million before interest.
One month later, the cost is now $342.4 million. No big deal. We encourage Hamilton County Commissioners to simply increase the length of the Sales Tax increase so that we can fully cover these overruns.
Raising taxes is how we show we care. The more we increase taxes, the more we care. We are happy to learn of this $10.7 million overrun. We hope it won't be the last.
