i’m not sure if this was to answer my question, but it’s not very clear. are people just saying that the “income” he doesn’t receive should still be subject to federal income tax? i mean, he doesn’t receive the income, and he’s not spending it on personal expenses right? the slush fund is just something he can spend money on for the city without council approval? correct?

[quote comment=”89349″]We could prob save a few jobs if we dont purchase the SW land and let a developer take it — should bring in some nice tax’s too —

Parks are like the news department of a Network TV station — they lose money![/quote]

Written like a true douchebag. Why save jobs that should never have existed? Why give even more of the town to developers?
I vote that Biffy B be tarred and feathered before he is run out of town.
