|Angry citizens take to the streets after|
learning of the new city tax.
Mayor Ben Dover had the tie breaking vote, siding with the tax initiative. He spoke to Channel 1 News under the condition he could retract his statements later. "No one wants to have to pay more taxes." he said with a sober look on his face. "But if I am to lead a delegation to the Bahamas this Winter, the city needs to strengthen its coffers."
When pressed for details on this matter, he continued. "Studies have shown that the Bahama Islands may hold the key to the future of Bridge Park. Two businesses in Bridge Park are producing products that may very well be just what people in the Bahamas want and need. One of these two businesses wishes to remain anonymous. The other is Olly's Suntan Oil Factory. If we can open up the Bahama market, it will be a boon for not only Olly's, but all of Bridge Park!"

In an update, Channel 1 News learned the second business the Mayor spoke of is Thongs and Things, a swim wear factory outlet uptown.
