"City" piece on Portland city councilor Tom Kane, who is unhappy about Cumberlan
"City" piece on Portland city councilor Tom Kane, who is unhappy about Cumberland County officials raising taxes over 12 percent this year, despite having what Kane says is a $4.7 million county surplus. Kane has asked the city's attorney to draft a resolution for consideration by the city council that would urge the county to return the money or face a lawsuit. But county officials said the surplus doesn't really exist, because they've already designated it for present and future expenses.
