With all the tax and rate increases, the Salt Lake City Council seems to feel that the property owner and taxpayer have deep or unlimited pockets.

To solve this, I would like to propose that every time the mayor or the city council wants a rate, fee hike or property tax increase, their pay should be cut by the same percentage. So if they want a 2 percent tax increase, then chop their pay by 2 percent. Maybe this would get their attention.
