Re: White Rock suffers growing pains, Sept. 9 letters.
Growing pains is always a two-step procedure.
Step one is when a builder or politician points out the advantages of city growth so that the tax burden is spread over a greater population.
Step two is when you are told the population growth now requires more services, such as fire and police, schools, street maintenance and other services.
Naturally, you must expect your taxes to go up.
