    I so much agree with slcgal! We have a great community and for 50 plus years I haven't seen an issue of identity, quite to the contrary there is a significant sense of identity in this region of the valley. I don't think a new fiefdom is an answer. There is just too much recent histories of incorporation that many wish they hadn't had. I know the 'study' says taxes won't go up the first year, but guess what, I plan on living here much longer than that. Hopefully those of us opposed to this movement will be in attendance at the meeting tonight, because those who do think it is a good idea are pretty self-convinced.

    Living within the Millcreek communities is darn good.
    We have fine services at reasonable costs, however in this recession, property taxes are too high. Everything is running smoothly.
    If there are issues, citizens have established avenues to resolve them.
    And presently, we have numerous volunteer citizens serving on the various community councils whose actions are altruistic as this story shows.
    The petitioners pushing incorporation want to set-up another layer of government saying they want more control of monies and regulations and pay themselves for doing it. The consultants' report shows that the Mayor's salary would be a whooping $202,000! Peter Corroon's salary is around $167,000.
    Incorporation of the area has been voted down twice and the petitioners will not stop until they have all our money and they can make all the rules.
