The spectacular charts below were made up just for you at the kitchen tables of well educated, honest and informed Warwick taxpayers. The Warwick Municipal side of business is repeatedly raking in millions of dollars every year from the Warwick taxpayers in order to keep up with the unsustainable, union contract deals that are bankrupting Warwick.
For example, the costs of funding our city's public safety was just over $33 million back in 2004 and today it's up to just over $43 million.
Municipal employee benefits (active and retired) salaries, pensions and healthcare costs, were just over $33 million back in 2004, today they are approaching almost $60 million annually.
Funding to our city's social services programs has decreased by almost $1 million.
Every time the Mayor and the Warwick City Council approves our ever increasing tax rates, the city takes more and more, as they tax us more and more. New city tax dollars taken in on the municipal side of business has increased by almost $25 million in 10 years, while the Warwick school system has been level funded.
Those that carry the greatest tax burden will start receiving flyers at their doors, repeatedly, so that they are well educated and enlightened as to what is going on in our city.
