DART House Nightmare on Every Woman Show

On October 10th on the Every Woman show on KKFI, Sharon Lockhart and her cohost Alexis Burdick had a couple of guests on the show talking about their …rather Kafkaesque experience with local government after they found out they had bought what is known as a DART house.  DART is an acronym for Drug Abatement Response Team, funded by COMBAT (Community Backed Anti-Drug Sales Tax 

With the COMBAT Tax coming up for a renewal vote, Sharon and I thought you might want to hear about some serious concerns about a program that even its critics say has its good points.  So, we decided to post an edition of Every Woman here. 

What’s a DART house?  Give a listen
