Connecticut Townspeople Balk at Katrina Donation

New Milford residents aren't happy that their town council decided to donate $30,000 in taxpayer money to Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, and the council is now rethinking their decision.

"I greatly resent the fact that the town is deciding where my tax dollars are donated," resident J. Brian Keene wrote on a local Web site, noting that he and other town citizens have made their own donations.

Aid from towns and cities in cases such as Katrina usually involve police officers and firefighters donating their time.

I would probably be unhappy if my town decided to donate tax dollars too. After all, while it's a noble gesture, that tax money was collected specifically for spending on town needs such as schools, police, road repairs, and so on. How does New Milford plan on replacing that $30,000?
