*Foust compared the situation to other special tax districts in the county, such as the ones that help fund the McLean and Reston Community Centers.
“There are areas of the county that have additional taxes, some pay substantially more than what we’re talking about in Tysons, so this isn’t the first time it’s been done,” he said*.
Either Supr. Foust is a fool or he thinks we're all fools: The two community centers actually serve the people who are being taxed--the "community." The Tysons district is all about developers making more money.
Which is Foust's greater sin: stupidity or dis-ingenuousness.
In response to:
New tax district will help fund Tysons Corner improvements.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted eight to two to create a Tysons Corner Service District, which is expected to raise money to help cover the estimated $3.1 billion in new roads and public transit development planned for the area.
