With the county facing a projected $26 million drop in tax revenue over the next two years, it's not surprising the thought hadn't crossed their minds. "If we cut taxes, that just means we've got to cut services and employees," says Democratic board chair Rolland Sizemore. "Taxation is the way we pay for services."
