Property Taxes

Carbondale really ought to look at doing something about consolidating property taxes and boards. It has got to be more efficient to have fewer boards and cumulative taxes. Granted the way the state constitution is set up, in order to do things like mosquito abatement, fund libraries and parks, the community has to establish a board and a tax to pay for it but seems to me the city council should start lobbying  the state, in conjuration with other taxing bodies, to simplify the taxing structure. Do we really need a separate Carbondale Park District and a separate Carbondale Township office?
