Fast Focus: 'Is the Tri-Cities growing too fast?' New construction must pay the price

July 28, 2013 

The Tri-Cities is definitely growing too fast! Infrastructure can't keep pace, services are stretched to the max.

Don't give us new or higher taxes to compensate for the cities' failure to plan ahead. But implement higher or additional building fees that will contribute to the school districts and municipalities to provide the necessary services.
