Because they can hide the city's bad finances more easily through leases while also . Starting in 2020 the Yum Center will require millions in city money to pay for the gap between tax revenues and the loan payments. We might even lose a major employer by then. If you think the city looks broke now, just wait.

FYI nearly all metro government buildings are lease/rent. That has been standard practice for over five decades including the old Jefferson County Government. It would be interesting to know under all those layers of LLC companies and fronts who actually benefits. Oh well that's another story for another day. As for the public safety tax that's part of the SURPLUS money the mayor and council are falling all over each other to spend on pet projects and smoke and mirror programs. Funny the sales speech to impose this gas meter tax was to increase funding the city didn't have to hire more officers and increase public safety. So let me see if I have this correct.....impose a tax because the city needs funding for public safety but now the city has millions in "surplus funds." Ohhhhhhkkkkkkkk take those millions and hire more officers, update equipment, pay a decent wage to those officers and use the funding for what it is intended for.
