We Say "NO" to the Proposed Corpus Christi Street Fee!
The citizens of Corpus Christi wish to inform the Corpus Christi City Council and Mayor Nelda Martinez that we oppose completely the proposed street fee ordinance that it is considering to enact for the purpose of collecting $15 million for street repairs.
Rather, we believe the proper solution is for the City to implement the process known as Lean Six Sigma. According to conservative estimates this would result in the following:
- It will generate an estimated $40-50 million per year in reduced spending that can be utilize to repair our city streets with a new fee being assessed.
- Improving the delivery of all city services
- It will reduce the overall size of city government
- It will serve as an economic stimulus resulting in the creation of hundreds of private sector jobs.
We want the City Council to vote no on the street fee ordinance and instead use Lean Six Sigma to reduce wasteful spending in the Corpus Christi City budget.

William Hunt, United States2 years ago Comments: This is not a fee; it is a TAX. Further, it is a quadruple TAX on the lower income neighborhoods. It is a direct TAX. It is an indirect TAX in that business have to charge more for their goods and services. It is an unfair TAX in that it will not be used to repair generally older streets in low income neighborhoods. It is a regressive TAX in that it takes money out of the hands of people who could use it to keep the economy going.
