Atkins has $8 million worth of add-ons -- which he suggests paying for by raising the property tax rate by one cent. Which won't pass this council, but could make for interesting chit-chat. Dave Neumann also has a money-making suggestion: When Atmos Energy's franchise contract expires with the city in December, raise the fee by one percent. Mr. Neumann, Bob Best on Line One.
