It follows that the collection of these additional fees would constitute “double taxation”. However, according to Ray and Zechman, the “free public services doctrine” had two important exceptions. First, a governmental entity may recover emergency services costs “by alleging that the county utilized emergency services to protect property of its own.” Second, and more germane to this situation, “[a] municipal corporation may, however, avoid this non-recovery rule by statute” (2011). Essentially, this means that municipalities can…

The discussions and readings from class have caused me to think about what my collection actually means. “The act of collection [is] a gathering up of properties in arbitrary systems of value and meaning” (Clifford 1985). This calls into question the idea that lots of collections, like mine, sort the objects into categories based on how we…
