City of Damascus off to slow start

A Sarah Hunsberger story in today's Oregonian describes how the Lege is keeping Oregon's newest city on a short leash:
State law prohibits the city from borrowing more than $5,000 until next fiscal year, which doesn't start until July. And the city won't collect its first property taxes until November.
The County Administrator also noted tonight that the county might, under some circumstances, be able to help with a loan.

Until solvency occurs, anybody want to chip in and volunteer to build Damascus a web site?
