Riddle me this Batmaughan...really!

There are three MSD in the city of Greensboro... Aycock, College Hill and Downtown Greensboro.

The city has no oversight or say so in who manages Aycock or College Hill. The board is voted in by the property owners of each neighborhood.

Now, according to the recent city issued RFP, the total upcoming budget for Downtown Greensboro will be $600,000 with no city contributions. 

The $600,000 represents the additional extra tax assessed on downtown property owners.

So...if there are no city monies involved and if the entire MSD is funded by downtown property owners, then why is the city even involved in who manages us?

Why not have a good ole fashion vote by all like the other neighborhoods?
