We are announcing the release of our Straw Poll #3 today.
This poll is more time sensitive than the previous two, because it deals directly with an action that the City Council may take at its July 5 meeting.
It is important that the citizens weigh in of this issue: the allocation of the Food and Beverage Tax. It will be one of the most consequential fiscal decisions that body will make this year.
It is especially important because it represents two radically different approaches to the budget.
You can find the poll here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CV6NYQR
This is one chance the electorate has to influence the actions of Council before they choose a course of action which could affect the finances of the city for years to come.
We will be sharing the results of the poll with the public and with the City Council before the July 5 meeting.
Please participate, and please encourage all of your friends and contacts who live in Ashland to participate as well.
