Keep the BPOL

57% of you want to continue to levy the BPOL in Virginia Beach. 28% favor eliminating it, but not with the current Budget pressures. Only 14% support Councilman Bill DeSteph's proposal to phase it out over 5-10 years.

I'm one of the 28%. It's a ludicrous tax, but we're already facing a large Budget shortfall. A couple days after posting on it, I started thinking it might become the local version of the Car Tax phaseout.

The new poll question is on SPSA. What should Virginia Beach do next? Voting ends on September 16. I hope to come home from that evening's mass transit open house with material for the following poll question.
