Vandals on Tuesday sprayed swastikas and malicious graffiti on the Taiba Municipality walls against the city's newly-appointed mayor Shlomo Tuizer, Israel Radio reported. Tuizer was appointed three months ago and hasn't been able to solve the city's financial debts, which prevent it from paying its 400 employees. The employees have not been paid for over two years. "The municipality has debts of over a quarter of a billion shekels, and it does not collect Arnona payments because of the lack of computer services," Tuizer said. Tuizer added that he would fire over half of the municipality's employees after the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, in an attempt to solve the financial crisis.
