Why mention what a tax is for?

Here I am again with wonderment. The tax did pass and I, for one, have  no objection to the passing but I do wonder why this town puts a limit on itself by asking for a continuation of the tax?
Seems to me, this limits the spending of monies acquired under this tax? As the streets or most of them have acquired a coating, I for one would question the need of a street tax for the next few years. Where as if Richmond had requested a tax, i.e. a slush fund, and had said the spending would be for the betterment of Richmond as a whole and not be limited to streets and etc., I think it would’ve passed with the blessing of us all. But again, it’s only my thinking, and true, there are times I wonder about my thinking.
