Letter: Be careful what you wish for with incorporation
I have an old piece of advice for Mr, Krupa and others who are proposing the incorporation of the Village of Oak Creek.
Be careful what you wish for--it might just happen. When Camp Verde incorporated in 1986, we were promised all kinds of enhanced services. What we got was a whole ‘nuther layer of bureaucracy, more taxes, more regulations, and no more services.
As for finances, I read that you’re talking about contracting with the existing fire district and the Sheriff’s Office. That takes money. Where is that coming from?
I suspect that, given the opportunity, a lot of Camp Verde residents would vote for disincorporation. I know I would, in a heartbeat!
