Tax increase best choice for city

I would like to commend the city staff, city commissioners, and the mayor on their conscientious efforts to determine the best and most efficient method by which to obtain the funds to support the Ute Water Project.

They have worked diligently without prejudice to find the best acceptable solution. I appreciate their work and I believe we should support their judgment on this issue since they have done the necessary research.

Clovis must have the water and I think we all can afford 25 cents extra on each $100 we spend especially since a lot of people have no problem driving to Lubbock or Amarillo to shop, spending even more on gross receipts tax, not to mention the gas to get there!
