A group calling itself Citizens For High Rock distributed a leaflet at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. The Leaflet is titled “Saratoga Deserves Better!” It is a full throated attack on the proposed City Center structure. While I disagree with many of its arguments, I am always for stimulating community discussion about important issues. What I find very troubling was the following statement on the pamphlet:
“Doesn’t generate property tax of (sic) sales tax revenue-leased to City Center For $1.
The current proposal from the City Center provides half the parking revenue to the city, the sales tax generated by the parking, and an annual lease payment of $70,000.00. I find it very disturbing that this group would distribute something with such glaring inaccuracies.
The group has a web site and I have posted on it a request that they correct the leaflet before distributing any more.
