Which Is It?

Fort Wayne's bold initiative to redevelop the riverfront will continue, thanks to City Council giving it's OK to an increase in the local income tax rate. 

While the supporters of the increase have tossed around various numbers purporting to show how little the small increase will impact local taxpayers, there seems to be a dispute as to whether that pittance will be measured by households, residents or individuals. 

It seems that there's a general consensus that the impact will affect households, yet the kids in the WOWO news room  seem to believe that each county resident, meaning every man, woman, child, and billy-goat will have to cough up some cash. 

And, it is indeed strange that WOWO would be the odd man out here, since usually they copy off of someone else's paper. Could this be independent thought, or, a complete ignorance of the facts?

So, kids, which is it?
