It's a shame that public opinion on this matter has been swayed as a result of some owners having done what they can to bleed the pubic coffers dry (I think the car rental/hotel room taxes are particularly sad cases), but we can't lose sight of the fact that these are civic structures, and the public has an obligation to pay their share (when they need updating, not when an owner decides he wants a new toy).
