A Fee for Colleges in Boston


I propose Colleges in Boston pay an annual fee to the City of Boston.



My proposal for colleges to pay an annual fee to the City of Boston is not punitive. The colleges take and continue to take more space, and their students utilize city services. Those services include Sanitation, emergency medical services, and other city services.


While college students bring the city revenue by purchases etc.. Many students leave the city for summers, breaks and holidays.


My proposal would begin with asking the colleges to voluntarily make a fair yearly payment to the city.


My proposal would begin with asking the colleges to voluntarily make a fair yearly payment to the city. If the colleges do not agree.  


I propose we put the question up as a ballot initiative. Let Bostonians decide.



The argument students will feel the sting of the payment is a non issue. College fees rise regardless of situations. 


Colleges are a beloved part of Boston. I want them to help ease their home cities taxes and city services.
