Storm Drain Tax Shortfall: -- A Harbinger for Library and Police Building Bonds?

So it turns out that the city won't have nearly enough to fix the storm drains with the "Fee" (I.e. "Tax") increase the blue ribbon committe told us was desparately needed to be passed by the voters. They have all kinds of excuses for this - all of which seem to be somebody else's fault or something completely unpredictable that hit them out of the blue sky.
So they're looking into other options for getting more revenue, or for scaling back the "needed" projects to less than what they promised...and much less than what we desperately "needed" when they were campaigning for the tax.(Web Link)
We gave them their tax increase. Now they're saying the same things about the library system and the police building as they said about the storm drains. Are we going to be fooled again?
